Patrick

I was very happy with the service provided by Patrick. My AC was blowing out hot air. I had been told by Doctor Auto that I needed a new compressor, which was going to be quite expensive. Luckily, I decided to call Your Mechanic. Patrick was very knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. He called a few days before the appointment to ask a few questions so he could be sure to bring the right parts. He arrived on time on the day of the appointment, then spent some time to do a thorough check of the AC system, and informed me that he did not believe I needed a compressor. He fixed a slow leak, did an AC recharge and then added refrigerant. The AC is now blowing very cold air, and he fixed it for a fraction of what I was told by Doctor Auto. I will definitely call Patrick again for future repairs, and would highly recommend him.

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 :)

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.
