Pete

Pete called ahead of time letting us know upfront that there might be more damage and that he couldn't guarantee that this would fix my problem but I opted to try anyways. He showed up right on time and finished the job an hour early. And he did a great job. My car is by no means in perfect condition (my fault, not his) but at least he got it up and running for me and that's all I can ask for at the moment. I would definitely use YourMechanic and Pete 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.
