High Zinc in Oil Sample, can somebody explain what does that mean?

Block Image

What does high level of Zinc mean in my oil sample. I understand that its an oil additive, if I'm right, but why is it going up? What should I look for or keep an eye on?

Tracking Number: 11154B04414

Oil has 87000 miles on, but with every filter change I drain about 2 gallons and put 2 gallon of fresh. There is an mistake in last sample.... Lube change is NO, and filter change is YES.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Your 3 major additives are Calcium, Phosphorus and Zinc. They will go up and down over time but the larger the number the better on your additives. Nothing to worry about.''italic text''
