Jose

I was a bit skeptical using an internet auto mechanic, but I am so glad I did. Jose arrived on time, introduced himself, tested the system, then went right to work. He put me at ease right away, was professional and did not "talk down" to me. He patiently answered all of my questions and never made me feel like he was in a hurry to get out of here. He made the repair and the bill was less than anticipated. I will definitely use this service and Jose 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.
