Lots of iron wear imo. I like to see it in the single digits.

I wonder what a 3000 mile/4828 kilometer interval would look like on your truck? I'm guessing it's similar to a 370Z engine?

mine is the YD25 2.5liter 4cyl engine...370z has a v6 engine i think 3.7 liter..

but 5000km on synthetic? its a waste dont you think?

I would try it just to see if your iron levels come down.

That being a diesel, and given the universal averages, I would gather it would be difficult to try to chase a number. Now, this is a diesel, right, given the subforum? What Edge 5w-30 are you using? Is that the A5/B5 version, the C3 version, or the A3/B4 version, or something else?

Yes, iron is high, but not too terribly high. You do have ultra low sulfur diesel there, if I recall correctly?

Timing chain problems with a YD25 is normal...there is an update kit I think. When these come in I use the Edge A3/B4 5W-30 and give them a 15,000km interval...and they always go over that.

changed my upper chain tensioner 3 days ago. i dont hear any noises and if i judge from my iron levels i donts have chain issues...ive seen uoa's with chain issues and they have over 100 ppm of iron...

what do you think?

Okay, I was just curious, and that would make perfect sense given the oil choice.

does your navara have DPF ? when will you make a UOA on the 0w40?? i have a suspicion that your UOA will be much better and B4 oils are more superior than C3
