On my sample testing my Ti is 0, so I am not sure what is high.. Read the link and click Data Interpretation for all sources of contamination. But what I am reading even a recent paint job of the engine can cause a High Reading if said paint gets into the oil. ........Was the sample taken with the engine at operating temperature? Also taken out at the dipstick tube via vacuum pump sampling system?

No recent paint, samples taken on warm engine, out of the drain while changing oil, after letting flow go for a bit.
