Tom was great. He was on time (even calling ahead to let me know he was on the way), came with all the proper tools to do the inspection he needed to do, double-checked both the battery and the alternator, and my car is now charged up and happy. He was just pleasant to work with, clearly knew what he was doing, and was knowledgeable about the car. I would happily pay for his services again!

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.
