Dan

Dan was prompt, friendly and professional. Before beginning work he asked for the symptoms that led to me asking the repair, and asked if I had any additional concerns about the vehicle he could inspect while performing service. He did an excellent job of diagnosing issues, and provided a quote and evidence for future repairs needed without pressuring. He even took the time after the job was completed to discuss his experiences with YourMechanic as a service. Couldn't be happier.

This was the second time having Matt work on my car. The problem I had with my car he was able to fix it. He was on time and it didn't take him long at all to fix the car. The next time I need something done on my car I will be requesting Matt again.

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.
