Mark

Mark was scheduled to work on 4 items on my care - enough to keep him busy for a few hours. Even though I'm sure he had more jobs to do during the day, he took extra time to secure a fog light that was just hanging down (happened when I ran over a wooden chair in the middle of the highway). The last 2 times I went to a shop for unrelated work, I had asked them to see what they could do about that light. Both times they said they would take a look, and both times, they completely disregarded it. Mark took care of it without even being asked.

That is the first time I tried your mechanic and the experience was positive. The mechanic arrived on time. While he was working on the car I was able to do my work. So I saved around 2 hours that I can now spend with my family and friends.

What a great experience! My car broke down on Christmas day. Augie was able to come one day earlier than my initial appointment, was extremely friendly, polite and professional and my Mom, who greeted him as I was working, loved him! He did a fantastic job on my car and it happened to be less expensive than any other mechanic I had to deal with before. Thank you Augie, you're my Christmas miracle :)

Shaun

This is my first time using YourMechanic and the experience has been exceptional. Shaun was very professional, courteous, and helpful. He took care of everything and left very little for me to worry about. He examined my car's problems and checked with me first before proceeding with the repairs, and took a couple high quality pictures to show what the problematic parts look like. For someone like me who knows little about the inner workings of cars, these pictures have been very helpful and educational. The final amount I paid for Shaun's service was exactly the same in my quote, which was half of my dealer's quote! Would definitely come back for his service 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.
