Though the repair could not have been made on the day of the first appointment, Alex got my car back and running until our rescheduled appointment. He replaced my master brake cylinder which was leaking before. Alex was quick and professional and was knowledgeable about any questions that i asked him. I highly recommend considering him for your own car repair needs

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.
