Replaced pads & rotors in rear. On driver’s side, a click was audible periodically and upon inspection, the outside pad was worn to 5% whereas the interior pad (at the cylinder) was maybe 40% still. Believe the exterior pad was hung in slider or caliper pins either weren’t releasing outside pad or engaging inside pad. Rotor looked good on outside but interior was seriously grooved, pitted and worn deep. Looks like gravel or a worn out pad trashed it but it wasn’t caught. Used all ceramic & torqued lugs to 85ftlbs. Rotors BBR 580243RGS $42.18 Pads BB C1033 $26.72 Tax $5.86 from East Kearney O’Reilly

Changed engine oil & filter. Used ORO HIMILE5-30 & WIX 51040. Checked tire pressures, coolant level, wiper fluid level & everywhere underneath car for leaks. No leaks found anywhere except some blowback/blowby oil vapor on top of engine near PCV valve. Might need replaced @ next oil change. Based on logs, it's using approx 1/2 - 1 QT of oil every change. Oil still passes light through it when draining but it was dark.
