Mark was awesome - I've already recommended use your service and request him in particular. Outside of all the standard stuff that I'd expect from a mechanic, he also got me outside a couple of times to show me things that needed further work. Spending another $400 is much more palatable when I can see that things are cracked while the car is taken apart (and I think the fact that he can do that is one of the best things about having the repairs done in your driveway). When he was done, he showed me all the parts that he had replaced and let me know about what else I should watch out for in the future (for example, he told me my battery was nearing the end of its life and sure enough it died the very next day). His manner is great, and I'll be requesting him for all future services.

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.
