Patrick was both professional and friendly, willingly chatting it up with me about my car. He lowered my estimate because the job was slightly less than what the website quoted, which was nice. While my mount was described as "broken" by another mechanic, he mentioned it was merely cracked and it was up to me if I wanted to get it replaced, which I did anyway because eventually the cracking would lead to a breakage. It was definitely a pleasure to be able to see and talk to the mechanic who was working on my car vs oftentimes where you just talk to the front man of the shop. I would fully recommend Patrick to anyone who needs work on their car and I will go back to him for any work more than an oil change.

Shaun

This is my first time using YourMechanic and the experience has been exceptional. Shaun was very professional, courteous, and helpful. He took care of everything and left very little for me to worry about. He examined my car's problems and checked with me first before proceeding with the repairs, and took a couple high quality pictures to show what the problematic parts look like. For someone like me who knows little about the inner workings of cars, these pictures have been very helpful and educational. The final amount I paid for Shaun's service was exactly the same in my quote, which was half of my dealer's quote! Would definitely come back for his service again.

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.
