The quick responsiveness of your customer service portal and of your customer service personnel over the phone is extraordinary. I was a little reluctant to try YourMechanic.com at first, but the YourMechanic team that came to my door brought his A-game expertise and his A-game professionalism with him. Right away, he pointed out what he would do to undertake daignosing the root cause of the engine problem, and plan out how to implement an effective fix. He took the time to clearly explain where the problem was, and did not mind explaining it more than once for clarity as I'm not tech-savvy. And once he concluded, he made sure to show me what he indicated in his report, for my peace of mind and for total transparency. Very mindful of how valuable and flat-out superb the service you provide is, that is the impression me and my family have of YourMechanic.

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.
