Mark

Mark is an exceptional mechanic. It's obvious that he enjoys what he does, and subsequently goes the extra mile for his clients. Luckily for me, he loves working on BMWs! His service is thorough, as well as honest. He won't sugar coat when your car needs extra attention, but at the same time, he directs you on how to create a service schedule that takes care of important things, one step at a time - it's doable, and makes financial sense with your budget. I respect his knowledge and feel that my car is in expert hands, with someone who understands all the factors involved when considering car repairs (for my BMW that I love :)

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.
