My understanding is that the timing and oil pump belts shedding bits off and clogging the oil intake is a bit of an Achilles heel for these engines.

Figure 1: An oil pump clogged with bits of timing belt.

Just want to report that this $16 endoscope does fit between the bottom of the pan and the intake screen.

It's a straight shot in through the drain hole.

First you get a view of this little screen (whatever it is).
Not what you're after, keep going.

Here it is.
60,000 miles, still looking good.

The plan is to make this part of the oil change routine.
It takes a little longer because you will have to get the oil hot and then let it drain for a good 30-40 minutes with the nose raised up a couple feet.
Worth it for some peace of mind though.
