    I could use a little info on the 1995 355 valve guide issue. Did it affect all 95 cars? The car has 14k on it. The compression and leakdown show excellent condition. Would the problem have appeared at this point? Can it appear in the future?

    All model years can be affected.

    Compression and leakdown would have indicated a bad guide.

    Yes it can as with all cars.

    More info , just use the search bar.

    Theo, do not buy into the argument that "if it hasn't happened by 14k,
    it is not going to happen", this is simply nonsense. Metals and their
    properties are subject to the laws of physics, not urban legend.

    Regards,
