This is my third time using Mark on multiple vehicles and couldn't be happier with the level of service. Even with the oil change and transmission fluid service, he left the work area extremely clean and took extra time to answer all my questions...even regarding issues unrelated to what he came to fix. Would recommend to anyone.

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.
