Yet another valve theory..is it possible?

Recommended Posts

Okay - I know theres many tangible theories about the valve recession floating(no pun intended) around...one that I heard that seemed very possible is heat. Heat specifically in the right intake area caused by poor oil/coolant flow or some other flaw.

However, on the 2005's other then the occasional fluke, I have not read about any valve problems ( correct me If I am wrong)..maybe when they redesigned the head, they quietly fixed the oil/coolant flow problem and thus solved the heat problem.

I still think it is microdust through the carb vent lines that is causing the problems, however, this is very possible also..maybe its contributing to the problem?

Let me know what you think (this was not my theory by the way.., I stole it from someone 😢 )

have there been any 05's on here with a valve problem? i know mine came with the valves very tight and i reshimmed them and will re-check them after this weekend. that will put around 10-12 hours on it since the re-shim.
