The older your vehicle, the more likely you have some amount of oil sludge building up in your oil sump.
Oil sludge is one of the most costly problems facing car owners today. More advanced engine designs often result in unexpected problems that cause sludge to build up in the engine's oil system. The sludge is particularly dangerous on screens or in small passages, where it could cause a clog that prevents oil from reaching critical areas. When this happens, severe engine damage is inevitable.
To put it another way, sludge builds up in the engine, plug oil return passages and actually soaks up fresh oil as it goes, cutting down on lubrication where its needed most in the engine. Over time the sludge can harden and crystallize with heat. At this point, your engine is as good as dead.
Going too long between oil changes is a very common cause. Has anyone ever done that? Yes? No surprises there.
Oil sludge can also be the result of a mechanical problem like coolant leakage into the oil. This alone is a problem that warrants repair.
