Default 03 prado engine knock, engine replacement

Hi guys,

Im new here and was after some help info. My 03 V6 Prado 290k developed an engin knock, crank, and its apparently common. Ive since bought a replacement engine, 130k but my question is while i have it out is there anything i can do to stop it from developping the same problem.
The oil cap has a bit oil sludge. Ive been told to do an engine flush and drop the sump and clean the oil pickup. Is that correct? Is it hard to do? Anything else should i do?
