Valve Cover Gasket Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Valve Cover Gasket all about?

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.

Keep in mind:

When the valve cover gasket is replaced, the valve cover should be inspected as well.

How it's done:

  • Inspect the valve cover for leaks.
  • Remove and replace the valve cover gasket(s) if faulty.

Our recommendation:

If you notice oil on the ground beneath your car, get your car inspected as soon as you can. Do not drive the car for too long with low engine oil. If they see an oil leak, most mechanics will inspect the valve cover gasket first. Schedule regular oil changes to minimize the sludge formation in your engine.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Valve Cover Gasket?

  • Oil is leaking.
  • Debris and oil around the valve cover.
  • Slight oil smell.
  • Oil found in spark plug wells.

How important is this service?

Your engine’s internal pieces are lubricated with oil. This oil needs to stay in the engine, because the engine relies on it, and it can be harmful if it leaks out. To keep the oil where it belongs, your engine is sealed in many places. On the top, your engine is sealed by the valve cover. This valve cover has a gasket (which is made out of rubber or cork), which seals the cover to the engine, and keeps any oil from leaking out.

If the gasket deteriorates, oil will begin to leak out. If the oil leaks out, your engine will not be properly lubricated, and serious engine damage can occur. Oil that leaks out through the valve cover gasket can also fall into the exhaust system and ignite an engine fire.

Honorio
14 years of experience
I initial booked an appointment to have the starter replaced. I thought "clicking sound" when turning over the car was a sure sign that it was an issue with the starter. However, Honorio insisted checking the battery as the bad battery could cause the starter to make that sound. I was skeptical as the battery was only a year old, but sure enough, it turned out to the battery. I appreciate he took his time to educate me on the a batter, starter, and the electrical system in general. He saved me money from not making unneeded repairs! I would recommend him to anyone and will be booking him for future services. From my previous experience at various shops, a honest, trustworthy, and knowledgable mechanic is hard to find!

Lucas
12 years of experience
Lucas was excellent. He was knowledgeable friendly; Lucas shared what he was doing to my car and why. I know a lot more about my car as a result of him coming to work on it. My Infiniti was a tall order: Lucas arrived at 11AM and stayed until about 5:30PM to finish. Upon completing the prescribed work, he showed me why a certain (previously insurmountable) issue was occurring, and asked to replace one final part. I said yes, after which Lucas made arrangements to go pick up the necessary part and return (he didn't leave until approximately 8PM). Then, the next day, Lucas contacted me again to let me know that a more updated of the part existed. He asked if we could schedule a time for him to come back and replace the part (ignition coil) one more time. Lucas goes the extra mile.

Enrique
16 years of experience
Excellent. Rick showed up early and was very friendly and courteous. He was not aggressive in upselling me on additional services which is important to me. He only made recommendations which were actually crucial. He set an appointment for me but told me it was optional and that I could cancel, which I did due to financial restraints at the moment, but I will be booking with him in the near future for the recommended services.

Tom
37 years of experience
Had an amazing first experience with Tom. I've already told my neighbor, my brother, and my Dad they need to start using him. Did an incredible professional job, even stepped me through the process so I can do it myself next time. It was very reassuring watching Tom work and seeing everything come apart and put back together with the new parts. YourMechanic is the opposite of everything that is wrong with the typical mechanic shop. Car drives perfectly now and buying my own parts and having Tom install them saved me a big chunk of change.
