Cary was very professional and kind. He was quick and still thorough with our vehicles. This was our first experience with yourmechanic and Cary left an awesome first impression! He changed our oil and rotated the tires on two of our cars, in the pouring rain! Yet, he maintained such a positive and helpful attitude. Of all the days to rush through a job, ours would have been one of them. Still, Cary told us about some other things we should look into and left us feeling safe and well taken care of. We will certainly be using this service again. It was so convenient and affordable. So thankful you're on the East Coast now!

Richard did an excellent job on replacing my motor mounts. My neighbors were so impressed they starting coming over and asking for the phone number. Richard was honest about all aspects of what he was doing, showed me the parts he took out and showed me the defects. I felt super confident he wasn't trying to rook me! MyMechanic is what the future of auto repair needs to be! THANK YOU RICHARD, YOU ROCK!! See you soon!

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.
