Christopher, and Your Mechanic, have been more than fair trying to resolve a no-start condition on the vehicle. Although he was unable rectify the overall problem which has had to be referred to Mazda (and who are being singularly unhelpful), I have no hesitation recommending Chris who was most helpful and persevered trying to resolve the fault. I will personally be using his services again in the future.

Augie was on time with the needed part and his tools. We talked a little about the process and he wanted to do a diagnosis first at no charge. After determining the suspect starter was at fault, he got right to work and had the job complete within the specified time. He took extra care and was sure to do a final inspection of the finished job. He knows cars and I recommend him for your car needs.

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.
