Dave was prompt for servicing my vehicle and was very quick to complete the job. While he was installing the new wheel hub, he noticed that the brakes had not been installed correctly and went ahead and fixed it free of charge! He definitely went above and beyond to make sure our car was safe to drive.

Theodore

Theodore worked on my car a couple months back. I scheduled something else (I thought I knew what was wrong with it), and when he got to my place instead of just taking my money, he advised me to get it inspected which I did. Come to find out I was wrong, and he fixed the issue and saved me money. That's when I became a long time customer. As long as Theodore is around I will continue to get all my services through Your Mechanic.

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.
