Mark would be the fourth mechanic I've had to work with from YM in the past few months. He was sent in to diagnose a rather deep issue with starting of the car that eluded two other YM mechanics before him and caused some obvious delays/back-forth and ultimately frustration for me. But working with him restored my faith in YM as being my first choice for car trouble. He was very thorough in his diagnosis, spent a lot of time checking various systems, followed up persistently as I had to take it to the dealer, and came back a second time after the car was back from the dealer for post-inspection recommendations. His reports helped me with YM corporate office as well in getting refunds for prior misdiagnosis as well. Without saying much else, I'd put him as an all-rounder - perfect overall experience for me. YM corporate, thanks a bunch to you as well. Your policies on refunds in such rare cases of misdiagnosis are very customer friendly and while I was concerned at one time that I am stuck with a needless bill, you made it just right for me. I am all the more advocate for YM now because of that policy and keeping crew like Mark.

Again, excellent service, and our problem was solved quickly and efficiently.
1993 MAZDA MX-6 - ROBERT PANAGGIO CAME TO OUR HOUSE LAST WEEK AND DID SOME DIAGNOSTICS ON OUR CAR AND FOUND OUR PROBLEM. UNFORTUNATELY, THE PROBLEM WENT A LITTLE FURTHER THAN ANY OF US THOUGHT, AND WE WOULD LIKE ROBERT TO COME BACK AND DISCONNECT THE PRO LOCK SYSTEM IN THE CAR, SINCE THAT IS THE PROBLEM, AND WE REALLY DON'T NEED IT ANYMORE.

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.
