The 3.4s sludge. My 3.4L V6 sludged up badly @ about 65K miles. The sludgeing was way worse than your pictures. My mechanic told me if I was driving a Ford or Chevy it would have been dead. He told me the damage was done and to go ahead and drive it. The oil pressure was low and performance and milage suffered a little. That engine went another five years and 120k before it died. I dropped in a $1500 90K junkyard engine last year.
