Question

Hi! 

I bought a MB9 with a D15z8 last winter  quite cheap with about 150 000km. Since the previous onwer had skipped quite a few oil changes I tried to adress the situation by making several new ones in a short period of time.

A couple of days ago i made a change oil and filter. 

And then I decided to cut open the oil filter an inspect the filter. 

And to my disipointment I found metal shavings in the filter and one flake several mm big flake. 

Is this a common problem on this engine? And is it something I can do to repair it or am I in for a engineswap? 

 

Sorry about bad spelling and poor grammatics since I'm from Sweden. 

 

/Not so happy MB9 owner

Not really. As soon as the engine is warm it runs really good. 

Very smooth and steedy rpm:s. 

No knocking or rumbling noise. 

I would say that it's considerbly louder before it reaches normal working temperature. 

But since I don't have much experience with honda engines I find hard to tell if it's something to worry about.

The noise when its cold is characterised like something is a little loose like a bolt or something. 

A bit of a vibrating sound.
