Alot is the way the motor has been used. If you do alot of heavy towing or running hard, things are going to wear out more quickly. Alot has to do with maintenance (frequent oil changes, fuel filters, air filters, etc.).

I change treads at the last second after I post it, I realize I was in the wrong forum. So I deleted that tread and posted what you see now. Please give me a small brake. This is my first time in a forum.

No biggie.

To answer your question, you could try Pulling the valve body out and cleaning it up
