Zachary is an excellent mechanic! He arrived a little early for our appointment. He carefully evaluated and diagnosed the problems with my GMC Envoy overheating - It needs a new serpentine belt and drive belt tensioner. We had two previous mechanics who could not figure this out, so we really appreciate Zachary. He answered all our questions completely and made sure we understood everything. We're looking forward to working with Zachary again, and highly recommend him to everyone!

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.
