Valve Cover Gasket Replacement Service & Cost

Why is the valve cover gasket important?

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.

Replacing a valve gasket cover:

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

When the valve gasket cover could be the problem:

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.

Why replacing a faulty valve gasket cover is crucial:

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.

I booked Maxwell on line. My granddaughter drives a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport which was given to her by her Grandad with the stipulation that only Grandad would work on it. Well Grandad has health issues so a mechanic needed to be found. Based on reviews we chose Maxwell. Professional, punctual and he did not talk down to my daughter in law as some mechanics will do. I am so very pleased with his work that I will be driving my 2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport down to Conroe just to have him do the work, that is over 100 miles but I can see the kids AND get my automotive work done. What particularly impressed me was that Maxwell knew what our Jeep is and did not see it as an older car but rather for the " bullet proof" vehicle that it is. Very knowledgeable and very respectful.....he is our " go to mechanic" Very very please with the reasonable cost also A++++++ experience

My experience with Chris was great. He saved me around %25 on my quote. He worked until the job was done and until I was satisfied even though it felt like 110 degrees in the shade. Thanks Chris and your mechanic for a great job. Thanks too to Jerold in the warranty dept. He went above and beyond any other place of business I've encountered.
