Blake was very professional, polite and courteous. He showed up on time to the 2 appointments that I had and completed the 2 fixes that I had on my Mazda6 (power window was not working and the door lock was not working). My only constructive piece of criticism was the actual price of the job was a bit higher than was quoted to me online. I believe it took him much longer to complete the job than was originally anticipated. I plan on using this 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.
