Valve Cover Gasket Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Valve Cover Gasket all about?

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.

Keep in mind:

When the valve cover gasket is replaced, the valve cover should be inspected as well.

How it's done:

  • Inspect the valve cover for leaks.
  • Remove and replace the valve cover gasket(s) if faulty.

Our recommendation:

If you notice oil on the ground beneath your car, get your car inspected as soon as you can. Do not drive the car for too long with low engine oil. If they see an oil leak, most mechanics will inspect the valve cover gasket first. Schedule regular oil changes to minimize the sludge formation in your engine.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Valve Cover Gasket?

  • Oil is leaking.
  • Debris and oil around the valve cover.
  • Slight oil smell.
  • Oil found in spark plug wells.

How important is this service?

Your engine’s internal pieces are lubricated with oil. This oil needs to stay in the engine, because the engine relies on it, and it can be harmful if it leaks out. To keep the oil where it belongs, your engine is sealed in many places. On the top, your engine is sealed by the valve cover. This valve cover has a gasket (which is made out of rubber or cork), which seals the cover to the engine, and keeps any oil from leaking out.

If the gasket deteriorates, oil will begin to leak out. If the oil leaks out, your engine will not be properly lubricated, and serious engine damage can occur. Oil that leaks out through the valve cover gasket can also fall into the exhaust system and ignite an engine fire.

Ben
37 years of experience
Ben called to see if he could come to the appointment early. He was nice and he installed the alternator and belts and jumped the car to get it running. I was told to leave it running for about 10 minutes to charge the battery , then I'd be good to go. I let the car run for at least 20 minutes then turned it off and it wouldn't restart. I called him and left a message but he didn't return it. I called the main number which took hours to call me back just to say that they had to call me back again. When they called back the next day, they said that Ben had informed me that I would need new battery terminals...WHAT?? He NEVER mentioned anything about the battery terminals and his report has nothing to say about the battery. He either lied to the office or neglected to tell me or put it on the report. So then they asked me if I wanted to set up an appointment to get the terminals installed....NO!! I'm not booking another appointment after that!! Are they crazy??? I'll get someone else to do the terminals and I will NEVER use YourMechanic again.

Patrick
28 years of experience
Patrick is the second mechanic to inspect my car from YourMechanic. The first mechanic (Milton) attempted to over-charge me and offer needless services. Then I tried Patrick. Let me tell you, the difference between the two mechanics is night and day. Patrick is very professional, courteous, knowledgeable and has a very strong work ethic. I feel like I'm developing a business relationship with a qualified mechanic who I'll be able to trust and depend on to give me his best. Patrick is the reason I'm giving YourMechanic a second chance. I will only use Patrick from here on out. I'll recommend him to family and friends as well. Thank you, Patrick!
