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.

Michael was very professional, called me one day before the appointment to make sure everything was on track. He showed up on time to the appointment with a professional appearance and tools. My car was inoperable upon his arrival and helped me push my 3800 lbs vehicle all the way into the apartment complex. He began inspecting the starter that needed replacement and discovered the previous mechanic had not seated the electrical wiring properly and thus the starter did not need be replaced. Most mechanics would of pulled a shady move and still went ahead and replaced it. Due to his findings he was able to save me money and time! I can't wait to work with him again.

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.
