Considering the number of old Toyota engines including 4 banger Camrys on road, the sludge issue here is being blown out of proportion. Actually VW have had more catastrophic sludge related failures and their solution is to use only a particular synthetic oil so it goes to show as others here have been indicating that apart from engine design and poor maintenance and driving habits, its also the oil being used has bearing on this issue.
You are absolutely correct in what you stated!!
Yet Ms. Blake NEVER mentions about other automakers, nor does she EVER say anything about the many other possibilities relating to sludge causes.
More reasons to question what she has posted here (and several hundred other sites with the same vague and misleading propaganda!!)
