" oil bottle was crammed in an oil passage that fed the valvetrain." That implies in the pressure feed.
Obviously, an imprecise description of what was found. I'll believe a piece of foil made it into the valvetrain but that's about it.

I found the video again, at 16min, he starts talking about, what he found. He's in upstate new york, so it's possible the foil came up through the bypass during a cold start especially if the guy had been using that Lucas stuff.

Sounds like he's just as curious how it got there as anyone, but the fact that it's hard to explain doesn't change the fact that it was there. What's the point microanalyzing or casting doubt on the man.. why would he lie about something like this?

Does Hyundai not use a screen on the pressure feed intake in the sump. How would it get in?

Probably a assembly error or something made for the internet.

The oil change was on a Mitsubishi, and it was a story 16minutes into a 20 minute video that wasn't the main focus of the video, I highly doubt he made it up.

Their easy pour jug design is truly awesome, I wish more manufacturers would do this. I've gone so far as keeping my Valvoline jug and pouring all my new oil into that for use instead.
Why not just use Valvoline full time instead of pouring other stuff in the bottle ?

Just did a change w kirkland 0w20. I take my pocket knife and make a slit from north till south, then tear each half one at a time rounding the bottle opening. It's not rocket science but it takes care. If you're that haphazard buy the valvoline jugs or the individual m1 quarts.
