This guy is great! He let me know before getting started replacing the leaf springs on my old F-150 that it might need to be taken to a shop if he could not do it. Nevertheless, he got down to business and took care of it! He also went to the store for items that had inadvertently been left off his list, came back and finished the job. Hard working man. He is coming back for more work this week and I will definitely have him work on my '14 VW beetle when the warranty is up. Pick Dan; he's got the plan!

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.
