Chad was fantastic. He worked us into his schedule in a pinch, and was communicative and helpful, and took the time to thoroughly explain his pre-purchase inspection when I asked for details about the used car we were looking at buying. . It's clear that he takes pride in the work that he does, and also values the people that he works with. He was courteous and friendly, I wish I'd known about mobile mechanic services sooner. I will definitely be checking out MyMechanic for actual service work to my *new* vehicle.

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.
