Wow! I really loved using this service, meeting Eugenio & seeing him work his magic. I stayed with him during the neutral safety switch replacement & he was very patient & professional. That old part did not want to come off! I would have spent all day swearing at my car, and probably wound up being unsuccessful at even getting it off. He did it in a matter of minutes!! By the way, his price for the part was 1/3 of what I paid for the very same part at Advance Auto. Very helpful in giving me options, and helping me better understand what was going on. Problem is a little deeper than just the switch, some internal transmission issues, but looks as though I will be able to continue driving for now until I decide if I want to ultimately trade in or junk it. Car drives like a dream, like it is new again. New brakes feel great. Power steering feels much better after flushing. I really enjoyed using the yourmechanic website, and all the pictures and updates I received. My best experience with a mechanic, ever.

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.
