As my first time using Yourmechanic.com, Patrick was on-time with the appointment. I was skeptical based on mechanics working on my car in the past. Most the time they fix one issue and leave another. Patrick checked all issues when considering diagnostic read wrongly of it being my starter. He saw busted fuses and put in new ones. Lastly, told me to get the oil checked and done. Once I checked my oil at a local place, I had to get all brand new lights put in the car.

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.
