    It's normal to see very fine particles in your old oil due to normal engine wear, carbon and so forth..

    After all your engine runs metal to metal parts inside..

    With that said the particles should be very hard to see if @ all with your naked eyes..

    If you had a bunch of shavings that are highly visible you would have known there was a problem long before now..

    Not changing your oil is a bad thing.. Should always be done @ recommened change intervals..

    Here is a sticky I made with general routine maintenance for your vehicle. You may want to look at the other fluids also.
