Carlos was indeed a 5 star mechanic! He identified the problem with my car, he used his time efficiently and took the time out to explain the variables that were hindering my car in addition to recommendations for preventive care. I have NEVER met an honest mechanic, Carlos has truly revived my faith that not everyone is out for a quick buck. Kudos to the use of knowledge, expertise and professionalism of Carlos!

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.
