Ben

Could not have asked for a better mechanic. Ben arrived 15 minutes before appt. (what a wonderful surprise), got to work on my car, was finished timely, cleaned up the door. He was polite, cheerful and personable. It was such an unusual experience to have a mechanic who fixed your car and didn't try to "sell" you more that was needed. Usually my husband has to first meet the mechanic to ask for an estimate because we found out that it's always higher when I ask for it! I will recommend Ben to my friends. By the way, Ben was recommend to me by a friend of the family Cedric Senter. (he should get the $20 you offer for recommending Yourmechanic)

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.
