I don't hear much.. Like he said, I'd just flush the oil and see if it gets rid of it.. no need to be paranoid.

Lol, I stopped listening to my girlfriend... She'll tell me her brakes are failing when they'll be making a slight grinding from them being new and her STOMPING on them before they even break in....

Is the Quaker state fully synthetic ? If not you better get it out if you have been running fully synthetic all along. Once you use synthetic you can't go back to regular oil.
