Peter called about 45 minutes before our appointment to ask if we wanted him to come early since his last appointment finished early. We were happy to oblige. I was at work so my wife dealt with him. He left about 10 minute before I came home. My wife was pleased with his professionalism and she showed me the old valve cover gaskets he had replaced. Truck runs great and I was charged exactly what my quote was. Saved me $ from having it towed to a shop too. Great service and I will use this service and Peter again. In fact, I have recommended it to two friends so far.

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.
