Stefan was great!. I have a very tiny car that unfortunately doesn't have much clearance for working on it. To replace my alternator Stefan had a lot of work cut out for him, and he did an amazing job with it. He was able to come out to my house on short notice and stand out in the freezing cold to fix my car.I was quoted a few different prices for an alternator replacement, YourMechanic had the lowest price. They are friendly and thorough! I love YourMechanic.com and will absolutely be recommending them to everyone!

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.
