What in the world did this?

Hi
I was checking oil levels yesterday, and noticed a number of little "particles" in the oil on the stick. I dont know if they were metal, bubbles, or some bardahl gunk.

Then I noticed the dipstick sides, near the bottom, seem to be chewed up. Highly polished edges, and a fishbone look on parts of it. is there something down there that could be doing this, or is it just from the motion of pullilng it out and putting it back in?


OH, the oil is fresh last week.

sounds like you should pull the oil pan

And take a look at what the heck is in there. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
