Best Answer

You can put inoil addatives {like STP} to help them last. There is also a thing called "Overhaul in a can" which I have used with limited success.

How can you tell the difference between worn out valve seals and worn out rings?

Bad valve seals generally produce smoke after start up only or after a period of idling. Worn out rings would smoke continuously. A compression test would verify the condition of the rings. Try a wet and dry test of the compressions. Get a set of readings dry, then put a teaspoon of engine oil in each bore, turn over and re-test. Worn rings will have improved readings when wet. Worn valves will show no difference.
