Valve Cover Gasket Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Valve Cover Gasket all about?

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.

Keep in mind:

When the valve cover gasket is replaced, the valve cover should be inspected as well.

How it's done:

  • Inspect the valve cover for leaks.
  • Remove and replace the valve cover gasket(s) if faulty.

Our recommendation:

If you notice oil on the ground beneath your car, get your car inspected as soon as you can. Do not drive the car for too long with low engine oil. If they see an oil leak, most mechanics will inspect the valve cover gasket first. Schedule regular oil changes to minimize the sludge formation in your engine.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Valve Cover Gasket?

  • Oil is leaking.
  • Debris and oil around the valve cover.
  • Slight oil smell.
  • Oil found in spark plug wells.

How important is this service?

Your engine’s internal pieces are lubricated with oil. This oil needs to stay in the engine, because the engine relies on it, and it can be harmful if it leaks out. To keep the oil where it belongs, your engine is sealed in many places. On the top, your engine is sealed by the valve cover. This valve cover has a gasket (which is made out of rubber or cork), which seals the cover to the engine, and keeps any oil from leaking out.

If the gasket deteriorates, oil will begin to leak out. If the oil leaks out, your engine will not be properly lubricated, and serious engine damage can occur. Oil that leaks out through the valve cover gasket can also fall into the exhaust system and ignite an engine fire.

Honorio called when he was on his way over, preformed the work very competently, communicated his findings along the way. Everything I expect from a true professional. I will definitely use his service again. The price is fair and it couldn't be more convenient!

Let me start by saying that I am very pleased with my decision to engage “Your Mechanic” for my car repairs, and in particular with Abdul. I received emails and text confirming my appointment, the day before and the day of the scheduled work. Furthermore, although the appointment was scheduled for 1:00 to 2:00 PM, Abdul Called at 12:45, apologizing for being stuck in traffic and anticipating being at my house 10 minutes past 1:00 PM (well within the time of the appointment). Once arrived, he quickly started working on my 12 year old truck, and continued tirelessly for the next 2 and ½ hours to complete the work, diligently and professionally. Although the estimate for the job called for completion in 1 hour and 15 minutes, complexity with the location of the valves to be replaced actually doubled the time required but I was not charged a penny above the original estimate. I have waited to write this review, until after I have had a chance to truly road test the truck (I’ve driven approximately 60 miles at various speeds and different terrain) and I am thrilled to have my old performing HEMI engine humming like when it was new. Based upon this experience, I would highly recommend the services and the employee to anyone that reads this review. From now on, I will definitely use “Your Mechanic” for the maintenance of my vehicles. Thank you Abdul.
