Dan was great. He arrived exactly on time and finished up the work in a couple of hours while I worked at the office. He was extremely friendly and professional even when there was an issue with the office landlord. My car is driving great now and YourMechanic.com via Dan was able to do the work for literally hundreds less than what any shop had quoted me. Once you add in the fact that it all took place at my office building and I didn't have to take time off or out of my weekend to get it taken care of and you've got a real winner. I'll be making sure to check YouMechanic.com for quotes first

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.
