The engine should be inspected for wear. The sludge isn't a good thing.

Low oil pressure


Kenny, The Volkswagen 1.8 seem to be prone to oil sludge in these years according to the forums on line. So if sludge is a problem, it could be partial plugged oil pump pickup causing light to flicker, and also may have cause piston rings to wear premature allowing excess oil to pass and show smoke from exhaust. Have engine checked, diagnosed and estimate for repair by a good Tech. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Took my car an 08 Hyundai Sonata for an oil change to the dealer and they told us there was sludge in the engine we have been keeping up with oil changes ,is there a defect with the sonata's engin


There are two main causes for sludge, not changing the oil and filter at regular times, and not running the engine long enough to get it hot.
You might want to get a second opinion from a shop other than the dealer. The dealer may have a sales promotion on engine flushes this month.

The engine oil light illuminates after making a sharp turn or after coming down from highway speeds to slower speeds


Sounds like you've got sludge. The best way to deal with it is to change the oil. Flushing with an oil cleaner is dangerouse but faster. The cause of this isrunning too long without an oil change, engine overheating, and antifreeze leaking into the oil. Lots of really short trips where the oil doesn't reach full operating temperture. Change the oil with a good cheap oil including the filter. Run the car for about a week 200 miles and change the oil again, filter and all. do this again untill when you go to change the oil it's not exactly black solid like the first time you changfed it. Another cause of sludging is the car does'nt warm up fast enough and not hitting the full operating temperture, it could need a new themostat. Overheating can cause problems too. Is the cheak engine light on? If it is you need to research the problems and get them repaired because everyuthing effects everything else.

I am getting no oil to the top of the head on the passengers side. I do have plenty of oil on the drivers side head. What has happened?


You may have clogged oil passages due to sludge build up. If you had the newer 2.7 or 3.5 liter engine I would say for certain. But these 3.3. liter engines from around 1996 don't have the terrible reputation for sludge the 2.7/3.5 does.
I would have your oil pressure checked by a mechanic with an external gauge. If the pressure is bad, suspect the oil pump. If it is good, I would run some valve medic or other internal engine cleaner to try and clear the oil galleyways. Follow the directions carefully on these products!
Throw a new PCV valve on there as well, it's cheap and takes 15 seconds to change. Good luck and keep me posted!

01 pontiac gt overheating. if a/c or heater on it


It may be the intake manifold gasket that has gone bad and you may be losing the antifreeze in your engine. Pull the oil dip stick out and see if it' over filled and look under the oil cap, look to see if there is any sign of antifreeze in your engine oil. Under the cap would have a milky brown sludge and under the PVC valve too, if there is then your engine is on it's way out if you do not repair the leak. Antifreeze is corrosive to the engine bearings and it's been know that as low as 1000 miles will cause the engine to go bad with antifreeze in the engine. The intake manifold gasket is known to go bad in the 3.4 liter engines till 2004 where they came up with an upgraded gasket. Good luck and keep me posted.

2002 dodge intrepid se 2.7 engine light on got


Anytime a Chrysler product of this year has a check engine light, get it to a dealer immediately. The 2.7 liter engine is notorious for oil sludging. This can be a dangerous problem that can destroy the engine.

Your problem may have nothing to do with oil sludging, and I hope it doesn't; but don't take a chance.

Google "Chrysler engine oil sludging."

Change the oil! The 318Cu in V8 (5.2 liter) engine has a problem with sludge build up on the oil pump pickup tube screen. This engine requires oil changes at or before 3500 miles with a high detergent oil.

Bmw 323 'r' reg e36 engine oil light flashing


your oil pressure switch is a great place to start. since the oil was really thick you could have a horrible oil sludge problem. about 50-100 miles before your next oil change take a bottle of Transmission Fluid and dump in with your oil. and Drive for the remaning 50-100 miles with the Trany fluid still in the oil. The Transmission Fluid is a great Cleaner for sludge.
hope this helped you
