seafoam it fixes everything, change oil with cheap brand and put recommended amount of seafoam in. drive the car 500 miles and change the oil and oil filter with the brand of oil you prefer.

thats nothing my aunts kia 1.8 engine was loaded with sludge and we had to scoop it out with a spoon once we removed the oil cap. drained the oil and the sludge would clog the drain hole so we had to constantly poke it with a small wire to break the sludge 8O

Can we assume the car is used for short trips, and the oil never gets hot enough to boil out the moisture based pollutants? If the car was used on a 20 mile commute I would expect it to stay clean. Used to deliver kids to the pool, to get groceries, to pickup auto parts locally - then sludge in the top of the engine would be pretty much normal.
