Jason went far and beyond what I could have expected! Do to an incorrectly assigned time for completion in the job I needed done, Jason did far more work then he knew was coming. I needed my PCV hose changed, and low and behold, my Mazda required the removal of the headers to get to the PCV hose. Without question, Jason handled his business and got it done. On top of that, he replaced my brake discs and pads, and on a request after he arrived, he went to the auto parts store and bought and replaced one of my headlights for me. Jason ended up working for 8 hours to get the job done. Then, after there was an issue with my power steering making noise after he worked on the car, he responded quickly and came out to my work to figure out and fix the issue. Jason did a great job, and I definitely recommend him to anyone needing work done. He will go above and beyond.

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.
