I found Josh to be wonderful. He called 20 minutes in advance and confirmed my appointment. He arrived exactly on time and was very personable and efficient. He completed the work in 1 hour!!! He noticed an issue with a tire and he filled all my tires to the right pressure including my spare!! I couldn't have been more satisfied with the service. I am signing to get my husband's car serviced next! Can't wait. Thanks so much for the professionalism and great work Josh!

Robert

Robert did a fantastic job looking at my car. And helped me understand why my car was not starting and which I did not realize the terminal would create a short so the power wouldn't get to the starter. And than later on with Robert's full inspection advised me into getting two more things done with my car and explained to me why. Both minor things and which I mean not expensive but very important. I would recommend Robert to anyone which I have :) Robert also did not leave until we both were completely confident I wouldn't have the same issue 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.
