Stefan

The whole thing was great. I had them go to a dealer and perform a pre-purchase inspection on a vehicle I was considering buying. I wasn't at the dealer when the inspection was performed but when Stefan was finished he called me and we talked about the vehicle and then he posted the inspection results on-line. This is the first time I've used Your Mechanic and I wouldn't hesitate to use them 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.
