Sent in a UOA for my Camry, its always had sparkly-glittery drain pans at oil changes so I decided to do a UOA. I drained at 1,704 miles on 10w30 PU (The real stuff, not pure plus) Camry had around 194k at the time of analysis. I have an oil pan gasket leak and mentioned i topped off but i topped off with the exact same oil.

I was trying to determine if it was metals I was seeing in my drain pan and whether I should keep the car. I poured the oil back in and have 4,700 on it now. Car is for sale now, decided I don't want it.

I guess I would cut the filter open (with a cutter, not a hacksaw), and see if you see flakes on the filter media.
