This is the BEST service I have ever found....the MBZ dealer was a RIP OFF and if you went to a shop you had to get a ride and it was still expensive.....I work from home and it's the perfect fit. I wish you guys mucho success. I'm referring everyone I know!!! Laura Mattos

I got communication to tell me he was on his way, he arrived 5 mins early, was very friendly and explained to me exactly what he did and exactly what he saw in my car for any future work that could be done. He was quick, clean and overall it was the best experience I could ask for!

On time, courteous, and helpful. A few days later, my car became sluggish and noisier than usual and my check engine light came on. I spent a few hours and bought tools to diagnose. I discovered that a hose had a come loose and was disconnected. I believe that the hose bolt was loosened when Grzegorzs was checking my air filter.

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.
