intrepid: sludge problem that chokes off the oil pump..000 mi..reverse

Resolved Question:

I have heard many people complain about the sludge problem that chokes off the oil pump in 2.7 Intrepids. My car now has 111,000 mi. on it and I have not yet had this problem. Is there a way to reverse the build up? Is there an oil conditioner or would the use of synthetic oil help?
