Very experienced and knowledgeable. I had researched the issue with the a/c problem on my 2006 acura RL and so was able to make a custom request to just fix the failing component instead of replacing additional parts and even the compressor as quoted by other shops. Tien was easily able to accommodate the custom request and the a/c is working fine now. Highly recommended!

Dan is a very good mechanic; my brake job gave him a bit of trouble at the start but he persevered and completed the task within the time frame. He also did an inspection and recommended additional repairs. It is very likely that I will be using him in the near future!

All about Valve Cover Gasket Replacement

The valve cover is a metal cover that is found on very top of the engine. The valve cover is attached to the engine by a gasket made of rubber or cork. The valve cover and gasket seal the top of the engine and prevent oil leaks. These covers are removable so the mechanic can access the valves for adjustment. Because of the high temperature of the engine, it is common for the valve cover gasket to get brittle and break. If the gasket is worn out, it will leak engine oil and the top of the engine will be covered in oil. Since the engine is losing oil, running the car for too long without an inspection and repair can cause engine damage.
