Patrick is the second mechanic to inspect my car from YourMechanic. The first mechanic (Milton) attempted to over-charge me and offer needless services. Then I tried Patrick. Let me tell you, the difference between the two mechanics is night and day. Patrick is very professional, courteous, knowledgeable and has a very strong work ethic. I feel like I'm developing a business relationship with a qualified mechanic who I'll be able to trust and depend on to give me his best. Patrick is the reason I'm giving YourMechanic a second chance. I will only use Patrick from here on out. I'll recommend him to family and friends as well. Thank you, Patrick!

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.
