First time I've used Your Mechanic and it was a great experience. I noticed a coolant leak late on a Saturday and thought I would have to park the car and then take it in for service early on Monday, before work. I wasn't looking forward to the Monday rush, plus the inconvenience of waiting in line and taking a shuttle to work. I checked the internet to find a mechanic that worked on Sunday and was surprised to find Chris was available. He showed up at my home ahead of schedule, confirmed my inspection, and managed to complete the radiator hose replacement the same day. Needless to say, it was the most convenient auto service I've ever had. The car never left my garage! Chris did a great job.

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.
