He provided in depth summary, media, details and recommendation via email. The media was useful. He provided photos for the fault.

Brandon was very personable and got the job done. He called ahead of time indicating his arrival time would be a little later due to a previous appointment (it was late in the day). I needed the starter replaced and he brought the part with him. When he got to the point of installing the new part, he realized it was defective before he put it on as on of the bolts was shorter than it needed to be. He was quickly able to find a replacement part at a nearby shop and finished the job. The car starts wonderfully now. Brandon was very courteous and answered all the questions I had. Would use him again.

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.
