That is the first time I tried your mechanic and the experience was positive. The mechanic arrived on time. While he was working on the car I was able to do my work. So I saved around 2 hours that I can now spend with my family and friends.

Jeffrey was great. He did a very thorough pre-sale inspection of a car we were considering, went over it with me point-by-point, and provided his card for followup if necessary. He displayed both a high level of general knowledge as well as a working knowledge of the make and model car we asked him to look at. In the future I will request him specifically. Great job, and thanks!

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.
