Found in Flush Box oil

I would like to know what will be the best way to translate this phrase from American English into European Spanish.

Will be okay to translate as: que se encuentran en el aceite de la caja de

carter?
Context

It's a translation of a manual about maintenance operation.

Here is the full phrase:

Check piston cup wear (as indicated by analysis of contaminants found in flush box oil)
yugoslavia
United States
Local time: 22:26
si el análisis del aceite en el recipiente recolector indica que contiene contaminantes
Explanation:
It seems to me that the flush box is not a component. Rather, they are emptying the oil into a waste container:

• flush box: http://www.claybailey.com/shopexd.asp?id=533

Then they analyze the oil. If it contains, for instance, metal particles, it means that the pistons are subject to wear. Thus, "analysis of contaminants found" is already assuming that there will be contaminants. If there are none, you can't really refer to them as "contaminants found."

That's why I turned the phrase around. Another version:

• según lo indique el análisis de contaminantes del aceite en el recipiente recolector

Regards,

Daniel
