The guides are a copper alloy and are only used up through wear not age (they are not likely to corrode). The guides are easily checked for wear with the cylinder head off. If the head is on then don't worry about the guides .... replace the seals from the outside, till they don't work any more. Unless the guides are moving the new seals will fix the problem of oil consumption ... always (at least as always as can ever be stated)
