Jason was great. I have already recommended him to a friend. He showed up right on time and wonders of wonders, told me there were some things that I'd thought I needed but weren't really needed at all! So he did everything necessary and my bill was less than I'd thought. Thank you Jason! The truck is stopping just great now, and I'll call you next time I need more work done. 5 stars!

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.
