Tien

the problem with my car was intermittent so the first mechanic could not find any codes and could not diagnose the problem for why my car would stall during idle sometimes. Someone online mentioned it could be a dirty fuel filter so I just went ahead and booked an appointment for that, but when Tien got here, the check engine light was on and the car wouldn't start. He was able to get the codes and fix my starting problem, he figured out exactly what was wrong with my car and explained everything for me. He spend a lot of time diagnosing the problem and did not replace the fuel filter because he identified other issues. He was very honest and so hard working. I booked him for my next appointment and am so thankful for this website! Thank you Yourmechanic.com!!!

William replaced the alternator in our Lexus RX 350. While he said his expertise was not in Lexus, but Nissan, he knew what he was doing and replaced the alternator properly. Probably saved me over $200. He was polite, prompt and knowledgeable.

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.
