Well today I decided to look into my problem more, I found the nut that came off the cold side impeller which makes me very happy, I removed the 2 oil control valves I didn't find any material on neither one of them, so I decided to bench test them both they both seem to move freely so I am not sure what else I should be looking for as far as trying to figure out what the problem was with the one that threw the fault code, I drained the oil let it settle for a half hour then took a very strong magnet then slowly moved it across the bottom of the pan I didn't get hardly any metal shavings on the magnet which is obviously a good sign, so next I took that magnet and stuck it in the oil drain plug hole and I was able to sweep the inside of oil pan with that also pulled it out and found almost no metal shavings, next I removed the banjo bolt at the back of the right side cylinder head and found one of those screens once again no sludge and no metal shavings, I have a couple more questions, my first one is so far I have found three banjo bolts 2 in the oil control valves and one in the back of the cylinder head, how many more banjo bolts with screens are there? Secondly how do you test those oil control valves? I plan on trying to flush
All the oil lines I can and pulling the oil pan, so do you guys think I got lucky and the engine will be okay for the long haul?
Also are there more banjo bolts with screens I should be looking for?
