Joe was great to work with. Showed up at my workplace and replaced my front brake pads. I also had a concern about wheel alignment and he checked that out for me on the spot. He was running late because of a previous appt, but he called ahead of time and let me know exactly when to expect him. Friendly and professional!

He was very nice and friendly from the very movement he showed up. He was on time and after quick meet and explaining job, he went straight to work. He explained how he was going to perform Gasket valve replacement and CV axle replacement job. I left him with his work and after few hrs, when I got back. He was finishing up with the job. He explained to me in detail what was done and what he recommends to make make sure car stays in good condition. Over all I was very happy with the experience and would call and recommend "yourmachinic.com" and specially Franky to all who I know. Thank you Franky

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.
