I would like to add my own sludge problems to this site! I had to have my engine rebuilt as well at 42000 miles on March 21, 2001. What prompted me to check it was the oil light was going on and off. When i checked the oil level, it was pretty close to empty. When I checked under the cap, the sludge was built up quite a bit. I had changes at an average of every 6000 miles. The last oil change before the engine was rebuilt was around 10000 miles. Since the rebuild, i changed it after 4000 miles and 6000 miles and the buildup is starting again. I have not taken any action in arbitration at this point, but after I see it is happening a gain I decided to research a little and now I see this is a popular problem...and VERY costly! What can I do to join in on getting this settled at this point? Regards: Greg Friedman
