I believed I found an honest mechanic. Tom was schedule for full tune up for my car. But when he check and test the car he told me that I don't need to change the spark plug. If you go to other mechanic they don't tell you that, they just change the spark plug to get your money even they know the spark plug still good. But Tom didn't, instead he told me what need to be fix in my car. Wow this days it's hard to find a honest mechanic like Tom. Tom will be my personal mechanic from now on. I save $214.00 due to honest mechanic like Tom.

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.
