First time I heard that, what service did your mechanic want to perform on your car? You can have your oil analyzed by a lab to determine how much of one compound or another are in your oil...http://www.blackstone-labs.com/what-is-oil-analysis.php

I think you should go back to your mechanic and verify what your saying, if he insists you have lead in your oil I would look for a new garage, that makes zero sense.

Years ago when cars used Babbitt bearings in the crank it would indicate impending crank failure. You need a new mechanic.
