The mechanics themselves are great. But the Your Mechanic business side of things wasn't at their level. The initial diagnostic said I should replace an O2 sensor. I scheduled the appointment to have it replaced. Two days prior to the appointment, 'your mechanic' called and said the initial quote was wrong and that I needed a different O2 sensor which was more expensive. I OKed the different part and when the mechanic showed up, it turned out to be the wrong part for the car and the mechanic said I needed the sensor which was originally recommended. This caused a completely unnecessary delay and multiple appointments which didn't need to happen. I asked the customer service rep why they changed the part recommendation in the first place, and he didn't really have an answer for me. I can't help but think it was an attempt to up-sell me. They did compensate my trouble by throwing in a belt replacement for free and said they gave me another discount as well. So I appreciate that. But in terms of trust and reliability of the business, I'm going to have a hard time vouching for this service as the convenience factor was clearly compromised.

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.
