Toyota Oil Sludge

Automotive News pointed me to the Center for Auto Safety:

Toyota Oil Sludge

Faced with a consumer revolt over low mileage engine failures
caused by oil sludge buildup, Toyota has begun
to notify 3.3 million owners of 1997-2002 Toyota and Lexus vehicles
with 3.0-liter IMZ V-6 engines and all 1997-2001 Toyota vehicles with
5SFE 2.2-liter 4-cylinder engines that it will cover the cost of sludge-related
repairs for eight years from date of initial sale.

Whether this will satisfy the thousands of Toyota and Lexus owners who
have already suffered engine failure remains to be seen because Toyota's
Special Policy falls short of an express warranty. Toyota modified V-6
engines made after July 2001 but has not recalled the earlier engines.
The 2.2L 4-cylinder has been dropped.

CAS urges Toyota and Lexus owners with engine problems to file
a complaint. CAS believes Toyota should provide an express warranty
of at least 10 years/120,000 miles, whichever comes later, on the engines
in the affected models.
