He did the 120,000 mile scheduled maintenance and instead of just telling me what needed to be fixed he not only took pictures and made voice memos. Then when he was done took the time to show me each damaged spot and thoroughly explained every question I asked to make sure i really understood the situation. I would HIGHLY recomend Tien Phan (and already have/am to all my friend with cars) and yourmechanic.com

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.
