Robert is a very knowledgeable and experienced mechanic. In addition to having an in-depth knowledge of my Tahoe and the recommended parts, Robert incorporated advanced technology. Using an electronic tablet, he photographed various areas of concern including the engine, under carriage and suspension areas. This was a definite bonus! I've always taken my truck to the Chevy dealer for service. But I've never received personalized service nor shown photographs of my vehicle's mechanical issues.

Jeff

Jeff was awesome. He has a full-on rolling repair garage he shows up in, not some car with some tools in the back or a pickup with some tools in the back. The guy is outfitted to handle nearly anything, right there at your house. He has competency, speed and he looks over everything associated with the part or repair he is conducting. If he sees anything that has the potential for failure later down the road, he will let you know. When he does fix something or notices something else, he'll give you the priorities of what is most in need and what can wait. He'll even asses what you might be able to do yourself and provide you ways to save money. Jeff is humorous and just a good 'ol mechanic like they used to be. Understand this though, because of comments like mine and similar experiences others have had with him, you may have to wait three weeks before you can book him...he is that popular. So if you can wait, definitely pick this guy.

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.
