It was raining at appointment time, but he returned later during a small break in the rain to replace a cylinder coil and now my car runs great.

Dave arrived on-time. In replacing the front brake pads, he was highly efficient (fast) in completing the job. He shown me the brake pad senor indicating there is only 1, not a pair of them. That fact saved me a few dollars on the bills.

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.
