2010 Pilot M1 5W-20 6600 miles High Fe & Al #4660892

2010 Pilot with about 95,000 miles, I've never done a UOA before, but decided to follow (test) the MM on this OCI, so I changed it when the MM was at 20%, which was about 6600 miles. Blackstone thinks I should go back to my former practice of changing at 4K to 5K miles. I certainly should change it before the weather in Chicago gets cold. Lots of short trips in cold weather recently. Otherwise, typical suburban driving with a 200 mile round trip once in a while. The oil was in there from July to January, so it took about 7 months to accumulate 6600 miles. The oil itself seems to be in reasonable condition, just unusual wear numbers.

Wouldn't worry at this point. Need to see more data points IMHO. Might consider a magnetic drain plug next OCI. If metals are high again at next OCI, then I might consider switching oil brands then go from there.

I would switch to a 5w30/0w30 since it seems to be at the low end of the viscosity range from fuel dilution and perhaps some other factor. I've ran 5w30 in my wife's 2006 Pilot for the last 6 years.

I'd run AFE 0W30 in it and recheck with another UOA.

Does this engine have cylinder deactivation?

I run 5w-30 in my `06 Odyssey and all is well. I have cylinder deactivation. 137,000 miles.

The cold operation maybe the cause of the high iron numbers.

Fuel high, flashpoint low, especially for no D.I. Yet viscosity is within range. ?

That's my thought as well.
6600 miles in coming warmer season might see marginal lesser metal wear I guess.

Thanks for the comments and suggestion. Agree that XW-30 is the way to go. Dino with 3k changes or synthetic and go 4 or 5K? It has the VCM. Previous OCI was the same M1 5W-20

Doesn't the M1 produce a higher Fe amount when compared to others?

Wondered about that too barely in grade 20 ~ and fuel dilution called harmless

If you still want a 20 M1 EP 0w20 has more PAO and might stay in grade better
My new 5.3L is whisper quiet on that stuff
