Augie's service was great . He arrived on Time and did a Oil Change for my Audi A6 vehicle. Apart from the Oil Change he was kind enough to look around the vehicle and show me what other things I need to take care like Oil Leak, Gas Cap etc. I am pretty impressed with the service provided by Augie and would highly recommend Augie Morales. Thanks

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.
