Oil is one of the most important parts of any engine due to the lubrication that it can provide. The internal parts of the engine need a lot of lubrication in order to stay working as they are supposed to. Keeping debris and dirt out of the oil supply in the car is the job of the oil filter. Without a properly working oil filter, you will find it hard to get the performance you need out of your engine. In order for the oil filter to work properly, the oil filter housing gasket will have to create a seal that keeps the oil in the engine. This gasket is always in use, which can lead to it becoming damaged over time.

Most of the gaskets on your engine are supposed to last a long as the car does. Due to the high amount of wear and tear that these gaskets will undergo in their lifetime, it is easy for them to become damaged. Having a damage oil filter housing gasket is a big deal and something that will have to be fixed in a hurry. The longer that you wait to have this gasket replaced, the more oil you will ultimately lose. Usually, this part will not be checked on a regular basis, which is why it is so important to listen to the warning signs that your car is giving you. Have a professional mechanic inspect and replace the oil filter housing gasket to make sure your car is operating in the best way possible.

Mr. Torrieantos was on time and very professional. I would have him work on either of my vehicles any time. Very happy with the service.
BMW 525i - Oil Filter Housing Gasket - Plant City, Florida
We have had Torrieanto out 3 times now for different problems with our BMW. We are very happy with his work. He knows what he's doing and gets it done, cleans up after himself, and doesn't do things that don't need done. We will use him whenever we have an issue.

Nissan Xterra - Oil Filter Housing Gasket - San Diego, California
Where do i begin. Arturo was an awesome guy. He showed up on time and super cool to talk with and explained things to me what was going on with my Xterra. Great personality and did the job in record time and also changed my air filter too and showed me i was missing a few caps which was good to know before I blew up my engine! I will now have him and only him work on my car and roommates car as well. Just a really really cool guy and honest. Half the price of what Goodyear was going to charge me so that helps a lot being in on disability and not much money these days. You guys better keep this guy around. total asset to your company.

Everything was great. My mechanic was super quick, finished within an hour. The whole experience was convenient and I paid only half of what a body shop quoted me.
