    I got hooked up with a Toyota tech that has 38+ years working on Toyotas. He drained all the oil and we went through it together. He said the metal shavings we found together were pretty normal. He even collected the oil from a Tundra getting a regular oil change a couple bats down and we found about the same thing. The Tundy had more but it does have two extra cylinders. The conclusion: a small amount of fine metal shavings is considered normal for our engines.

    As for the bearing growl I've been hearing, it's coming from the alternator. When the AC compressor kicks in it pulls more power putting more load on the alternator. Toyota will cover an alternator replacement under the existing warranty.

    347 miles to go on the warranty :D

    If you need work done at the stealership, I will vouch for North Park. They have been very good to me.

    @LostHusker - Have you been coming to North Park?

    That is at least, very GOOD to KNOW. And that they found that growl is some good work!

    They also said since I reported the issues before the warranty is up, if it gets worse it will be covered.

    Oh were trying, definitely in the red for power usage. They don't want us touching anything that may jeopardize the units
