After Sun Devil quoted me a ridiculous price, I turned to Your Mechanic. Steven was my mechanic and was a really cool guy. He arrived on time and finished the job on time. My car drives perfectly again and I will definitely go to him next time my car has an issue.

This was my first time using YourMechanic so I was a little hesitant. But Richard was absolutely awesome. I'll probably request him for future auto appointments. He was here on time for the appointment (in fact a bit early!), and did the job in 40 minutes. All while I was able to get some work done at home. Is this the next big thing in the DMV? Cause sign me up!

Danny

Had a coolant leak. Needed an engine gasket and thermostat replaced. Also needed a flush of the coolant system and oil change. It was a very long job and Danny was dedicated to getting it done. He also gave me other automotive advice and answered all of my questions thoroughly. The car is no longer overheating or leaking. He did a great job. I would definitely use this service 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.
