Tom

Tom is officially my new favorite mechanic. He came to do an oil change and tire rotation on my mother's car on a Saturday morning. He arrived at 11:00 on the dot ready to work. Very friendly guy, and we learned that he was a mechanic at Audi for about a decade. I love that he didn't talk down to my mother or me for being women, explained any issues we had and I could tell he really knew what he was doing. What a big difference from the last mechanic I had! Since the last mechanic that came left my car in a bit of a mess, I asked if Tom could take a quick look at mine as well once he was done. Being off the clock by then, he happily agreed to take a look. What an honest, great guy. On a Saturday, too! One quick look and he could tell the last mechanic didn't put my filter on right and that's why oil leaked everywhere..this is why it's important to look through reviews before booking your mechanic. I'll never use anyone but Tom! He's efficient, friendly, genuine and very good at what he does.

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.
