Tom

Tom provided excellent service. He inspected the car and wanted to make sure that the battery was good before going any further. He had a generator and a charger in his van which he used for about 30 minutes and tried to start the car a few times. The charger showed the voltage fluctuating between 15V and 13V which he said is not supposed to happen if the battery is good and can take charge. He suspected that the battery is sulfated and needs to be replaced. Since the battery is Interstate and less than a year old and still under warranty he advised getting it replaced first before looking at other things. My first experience with YourMechanic and with Tom has been very positive and I won't hesitate in recommending your services to my friends and colleagues when they have any auto issues.

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.
