Michael arrived early and finished early. Overall it was a great a experience with Michael. The website needs some work and the support systems at yourmechanic need improving. Also the app that the mechanic had to deal with to update my service order took a really long time. The actual car work was excellent but the overall execution through the yourmechanic systems needs some work.

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.
