Stefan came 3 times to solve several car problems, which he solved very methodically. He came on time and finished the jobs in a reasonable time. I also like the fact that they come to your own drive way, wow! He calls you and tells you what time he is coming. Also, everything is done online. It all very convenient. The cost turned out cheaper than the dealer.

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.
