Godwin did an amazing job when he worked on my car. First, he arrived a little early which I greatly appreciate. Godwin's punctuality combined with exceptional mechanic skills resulted in the job getting done significantly faster than I anticipated. Second, Godwin provided me with maintenance tips to help me as a car owner. Finally, Godwin explained all the issues he found underneath the hood of my car. He even chit chatted with me the whole time he replaced my gaskets. Godwin is a cool dude all around. Overall, Godwin exceeded my expectations even though he has a bunch of great reviews. Thanks again Godwin, I will definitely be a returning customer.

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.
