Jeffry was friendly and super helpful. An all around gem of a person, even though there appeared to be more bigger issues with the car he was able to tell me what my next steps should be. Soooooo helpful, and soooo thankful for all of his assistance

Jose came two hours earlier, which would have been okay, but I was not ready. Being too early is as bad as being too late. I would expect an email or phone call asking if a change on time would be okay. Also, they didn't give to him enough coolant to completely fill the cooling system, which was completed with tap water. This wasn't his fault, since the system calculates the parts and order them automatically. However, my car now doesn't have the 50/50 water and coolant ratio. Plus tap water is not as good as distilled water. Other than this, he did an excellent 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.
