1DX - "Oh the oil of it all"

So I'm on my 4th 1DX due to mirror box issues and I'm starting to learn this animal well.

Go through my last group of shots and I notice funky focus and exposure issues that are rearing their ugly heads again....

Sure enough... took a snap of blue sky and it's like Shell Oil has moved into my ridiculous 1DX.  Went through my blue sky pictures for water sports and..... It's a post nightmare

So now for the third time in 3 months I'm having my 1DX cleaned with about 7000 shots to its name.

"Oh the oil of it all"

I hope I don't have to get a 5th 1DX to get a working copy..... AGAIN!!!!!

Are you supposed to just keep cleaning the thing until it breaks each time?

Canon!!!  This is a nightmare!
