very interesting ! how BIG are these particles you refer to ?(how many microns ) what about those external magnets one can buy, apply to oil filters? The OEM SAAB OG 9-3 (et all ) oil sumps are of an insubstantial, miserly paltry, pathetically small capacity so I plan to add 2 large 1 QT external oil filters Ps can't find the info but there is a significantly larger than stock filter that will fit if ya' do a bit of work w/ like a Dremel tool on the crankcase or ? ( someone said )? I plan to try it the stock oil capacity is trifling, ungenerous, inane! waaaaay too small! PS as per Fram the longer TG 3600 filter I've used for Years only holds a couple OZ more oil ! What is this stuff about not using aluminum drain plugs ? is it because of potential or actual galling? if so we use never seize on about everything! always have a can of it w/ a small acid brush and give a swipe of every bolt and nut( that does not require Loctite )and we safety wire all drain plugs and other critical components an old habit fr racing motorcycles and aircraft ! you don't ever have to worry when you safety wire! we suppose you could always make the drain plugs out of bronze, or titanium if there is some metallurgical issue? dissimilar metal corrosion?
