Thanks for C&P... is the air filter on the Quest in good shape? That looks filthy for only 8k miles (but at least that part isn't in the engine anymore)... maybe Nissans just put lots of particulates/insolubles into the oil. That engine isn't GDI, is it?
The media is actually not very dirty at all, It always looks worse in pictures than it does in person.
The bits of debris in the photos is from me cutting the filter open with an air grinder with a cutoff wheel.
The micro glass media kind of glistens when it is oil soaked, and almost looks like a layer of sludge on the media.
Maybe next one I'll wrap in some paper towels to dry out the media for a better pic.
Oil had darkened some but was still a dark amber on the dipstick.
I did check and replace air filter, as this was the 100k service, old air filter still looked nice though.
Also got new NGK Ruthenium plugs, new pcv valve, and a drain and fill of Amsoil CVT fluid.
