Peter already had the work done before he called me out. I don't think he was there a half hour. He worked fast and I am very satisfied with his work.

Trung was very professional and went above and beyond in answering all of my questions, and I had a lot of them. He was extremely patient and showed me exactly the location of his repair and even took photos to show me how it looked when it was taken apart. This truly showed he takes care in his craft and listening to customer concerns. Pre-appointment he was very responsive and even answered my questions via text on a Sunday night! Very glad he worked on my car and will definitely reach out to him again for my car care needs.

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.
