Noe went above and beyond the service I requested (oil change and tire rotation). He gave my car a thorough inspection, and took detailed images of several areas I need to put additional maintenance into. He was fast too - in and out in less than an hour! Thank you Noe for an excellent job!

Jeffrey

Jeff provided me with great service. He arrived on-time (actually he was early, which was even better). He listened to my complaint and quickly went about assessing the situation. After a thorough inspection/diagnosis he explained what the problem was and offered a solution. He made several suggestions for future work that I need to keep an eye on. His written/recorded report was comprehensive and professional. He took the time to answer all of my questions and made several helpful comments regarding my concerns. Overall, I was very pleased with Jeff's knowledge and professionalism. Whenever I need a mechanic in the future, I will most likely call on him. A Satisfied Customer, RJH (Bob)

My appointment was scheduled for 10:00 a.m. Kyle called to say he would be about 25 minutes late. He arrived when he said he would. He seemed knowledgeable and was polite and friendly. He quickly came to his conclusion that my old Buick was done and I should look to buy another vehicle. A little too quickly for my liking, but he was not trying to sell me parts or services I did not need. He gave me good advice on how to financially maximize what's left of my old car. My only criticism and it's a small one, is that he did not seem interested in hearing my opinions or comments about what I had done to or replaced on the car. He seemed confident that my vehicle was beyond repair and moving on was my best option. I would use YourMechanic Services Inc. 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.
