Rocco

Incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and personable. I called for a check-engine light on our aging MLS 320. A problem it turns out only the dealership can fix. Nonetheless, Rocco was able to give me the litany of issues AND the order of priority. Now I can go to the dealership with all the knowledge I need to be in control. And when they fix the major issue, I'm calling Rocco back to fix the rest of the problems. Overall, great experience with Rocco and the service.

I have to say that I was a little apprehensive at first. Being a Mercedes driver, I've come to know that servicing these cars are anything but normal. So in asking I found that Peter approached this job different from the dealer. My mind was set to rest with a detailed explanation from Peter. He does excellent work with excellent cleanup as well. I was very happy with the outcome and also pleased that he was on time, early actually and very professional. I will be using him again I'm sure. Michael C

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.
