I've talked to dealers service people and they tell me they have never
fixed a sludged engine that has had the oil changed at the correct
Of course I haven't talked to them all, but I've never heard from one
that said they fixed a sludged engine with the proper oil changes.
The only reason I say dealer oil changes, is that I KNOW they were
I'd bet everything I have that your engines contain no sludge.
You change your oil.
You think this person changed their oil?
Inez of Lanett AL (03/13/07)
My motor just quit. I knew that my oil changes were current, well,
current enough not to warrant a blown motor. I could feel something
the week before happening to my car, but wasn't sure.
Toyotas says what some in the Toyota NG choose to believe is incorrect. One
of the reasons Toyota instituted the warranty extension on engine indicating
"gelling" was it was turning up in engines serviced properly at dealerships.
No manufacturer warrants for negligence. Do a search, WBMA
Lunch: Ham sandwich with lettuce and cheese, some baked rice snack chips,

What's your point?
I have all the service records for my cars, including the ones I no longer
own (don't ask why). Therefore, the information I provided about problems
with my cars is absolutely, inarguably accurate.
Never said it wasn't. You said "All evidence is anecdotal." All evidence is
not anecdotal. Empirical evidence, for example, when you have a known
control value and your are looking for a difference from that value in your
observations, usually coupled with a measurable sample rate. Similar to
I'm done with you, you just want to argue for the sake of it.
My "all evidence" comment was meant as sarcasm. Unless you personally
collect data, or you're present when an event occurs, it's reported to you
by someone else whose data you cannot see. I made the comment because you
(or someone else here) was beginning to sound like one of the 3 musketeers
(dbu, splatt in florida, etc), who once said they don't read books because
all authors have opinions.
As if that/this means anything (Google results):
Search for Ford AND truck AND recall: 1,220,000 results
Search for Toyota AND truck AND recall: 814,000 results
Search for Chevy AND truck AND recall: 801,000 results
Search for Dodge AND truck AND recall: 790,000 results
You must have missed my lecture on the valuelessness of "Google Hits" as a
measure of anything.
Let's see, we'll do this by example:
Google "ed white" genius => 793 hits
Google "ed white" moron => 5,480 hits
Well, Ed, the Google on you is in and I'm afraid the results are not good...
