Re: Debris in oilpan. What is it?

I have no idea what part it is that you've found in the oil pan. I am curious, however, to know if you're replacing the main and rod bearings with standard or oversize bearings.

Re: Interior light acting funny

A blown fuse would prevent the bulb from illuminating at any time, so the fuse is not the issue here. I would suspect that there's probably a poor ground related to that circuit. Replacing the bulb...
