Lucas was great. Inspected my Jeep before he did any of the scheduled work, reevaluated what needed to be done and was very informative. Made sure that he only did the work that needed to be done, was very thorough, and saved me some money. Would highly recommend him to anyone else.

Brandon showed up right at 7AM and was a magician. The issue I'd been having for a couple of months, and even occurred just 20 minutes before his arrival, never happened. He checked my vehicle over and took it for a test drive...still no symptoms. He knows his stuff, and gave me some tips in case the issue returned. I'll definitely request him again, and will send my friends his way.

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.
