Noe is both knowledgeable and amiable - a rare combination with most mechanics in my experience. I needed new brake pads on both front and rear, as well as rotors. Noe arrived on time and kindly explained I needed new calibers in the front as well. Since he needed more parts than what he prepared for, we ended up rescheduling my appointment for later in the afternoon when the additional parts were ready. Noe arrived even earlier than expected a few hours later and did a fantastic job! I loved working with him. He explained every part of the process and even gave me recommendations for some work I'm looking to do in the near future. This was my first time using Your Mechanic. I got great service, and great value for the money I spent. I will absolutely schedule service with this company in the future, and you bet I will always request Noe if he's available.

Matty was punctual, friendly and a good listener with attention to detail. He narrowed the problem down to the fuel pump, which was unfortunately not something fixable in my driveway.

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.
