Patrick

Patrick was both professional and friendly, willingly chatting it up with me about my car. He lowered my estimate because the job was slightly less than what the website quoted, which was nice. While my mount was described as "broken" by another mechanic, he mentioned it was merely cracked and it was up to me if I wanted to get it replaced, which I did anyway because eventually the cracking would lead to a breakage. It was definitely a pleasure to be able to see and talk to the mechanic who was working on my car vs oftentimes where you just talk to the front man of the shop. I would fully recommend Patrick to anyone who needs work on their car and I will go back to him for any work more than an oil change.

First time jitters (risk vs. reward) with YourMechanic. Well worth it after the experience working with Jason. Solely because of the overall pleasant and professional experience with him would I try YourMechanic again. He did a thorough test and review of the auto shop that had diagnosed a fault and cut down my cost by negating one of the things the shop had recommended to do. He provided relevant information about the repair and the underlying system, which put me at ease about his knowledge. He is really diligent and follows up as promised. Thank you Jason - as you can imagine I hope not to see you soon, but in case I need to then you will be my first choice :)

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.
