Yeah if it is blocked with sludge then you definitely have a problem. Clean out the sludge as best you can, run a good high detergent synthetic oil and change it frequently.

Is it blocked with build up, or is it purposefully blocked? On some engines a drain back will be blocked or restricted on purpose to keep oil in a certain spot.

There are 3 oil drain galleries in the head of my 6G74 Diamante. One seems blocked (oil puddle there that does not go away). Is this a problem? Can this be fixed without removing the heads? Considering the puddle of oil does not drain, I assume no
