I absolutely love the value that Your Mechanic service brought to the process of hiring a mechanic. It's a comforting feeling to have someone come to my house to do some fixes rather than drop it off at someone else's property for them to potentially hold it for ransom. I could see exactly what the mechanic was doing, He communicated with me what was going on the whole time and really wasn't afraid of having me around asking questions. I learned a lot and thought that was worth more than the actual repair job. So, not only was my mechanic on time, courteous and competent; he was thorough in his assessment and patient with me.

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.
