Noe

Noe was very professional and arrived in a timely manner. He checked that my repair was required before actually doing the work, and when it turned out it wasn't, he showed me exactly why it wasn't required. To be specific, he showed me the depth of my current brake pads vs the depth of the new brake pads, which saved me a lot of money. He was upfront and honest, and I really appreciated his demeanor.

Richard

Richard was a wonderful guy to work with. He showed up on time, and finished about an hour ahead of the three hours scheduled for the repair. He also encouraged me to watch him because he enjoys teaching the consumer what exactly is going on. I really appreciated that being somewhat of a novice when it comes to car repairs.

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.
