Enrique
16 years of experience
Enrique is very professional, courteous, and thorough. He was fully prepared and equipped for the job, and was very well organized. He performed the work in a timely manner. A more serious, deeper problem within the engine remained after he was done, and will require significantly heavier maintenance which is beyond the scope of this company and service. Nevertheless, I highly recommend Enrique, and will use him and YourMechanic again in the future, if I have other maintenance needs on this car or my other car. He is a good man.

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.
