Josh is the kind of mechanic you always want to work on your car. He truly has a passion for fixing cars and can explain what needs to be done in terms i could understand. He's the kind of mechanic that you can trust. I'm not trying to sugarcoat this but I had a great experience with him replacing my a/c compressor and will ask for him again for my next service needs.

On time to the minute. Got my car that had been sitting for a while starting perfectly at an amount that was less than the quote, and gave me a heads up on what things I should fix up soon and what could wait. He even reset the time on the car clock after replacing the battery!

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.
