Isai was simply but amazing! Autozone had told me I needed to replace my alternator after jumping it that morning and when I booked Isai to do the replacement worked, he quickly noticed that I did not have an alternator issue! He stayed with me for another 45 minutes explaining everything and teaching me the basics for any other issues, if my car went out again! I will be recommending this place to friends and family members!

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.
