This happens in a lot of cars that are driven short journeys in cold weather, the engine never gets hot enough to get rid of the condensation in the engine and it builds up to form the "gunge" I cured it on an Astra I had by blanking off part of the radiator but as your girlfriend never checks her oil she probably never gets it serviced so an oil and filter change might be overdue.
Currently in davesss's garage:
2002 Laguna Sports Tourer 1.8 Dynamique Moondust VF1KGOB, Fiat Siecento Micheal Schumaker, Kawasaki KLE M/Cycle and a cheap Mountain Bike.
