Godwin did a thorough job inspecting the car and pointed out something important about an airbag light that was on, saying that this could be anywhere from a $10 to a $1000 fix. As a result we are going to pass on this car and keep looking. As far as I am concerned Godwin did exactly what we hoped for in terms of catching issues with the car that could have cost us lots of money to fix if we had purchased it.

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.
