    Bearing rollers? in the oil

    The past 4 or 5 oil changes have found 3 (one at a time) what appear to be bearing rollers stuck to the magnet on the drain plug. I don't know what internal part that would have roller bearings like this other than maybe the lifters. The engine runs fine , uses no oil and doesn't make any abnormal noises. I have had it since new and have 110,000 miles. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. 99TA, M6, cold air kit. otherwise mostly stock.

    More than likely they are rocker arm bearings.

    Post a picture maybe, but 9/10 it will be a rocker arm failing.

    Pull your valve covers now bud while she's still running. I see a boat load of trouble in your future if this is not corrected..

    Thanks for the replys & the info. I'll pull the valve covers & see what's up. After seeing pics of what the rocker arm bearings look like, these look the same. Thanks again

    Harland Sharp and Comp both sell a upgrade kit to repair/prevent this. HS will do the rebuild for you for $260 last I checked......
