Our pump was about 30 years old when it failed. * It cost about $1,500 to
pull it out and replace it. * *The first sign of failure was "crap" that
clogged up filters. * Just before it failed the water has some oil in it..

You don't want to wait for a complete failure and you don't want to
contaminate your plumbing with the oil.problem?

What about rust? My Dad mentioned it may be rust from the pipes and
replacing would solve this problem. Is there anywhere you can take the
water to be tested to find out exactly what the debris is?
