Patrick was great ( he showed up early which was appreciated!), however the part was not. Trying to get a replacement from him. The fan motor he replaced is not OEM quality. I will update this review when the job is done right...

Honorios was excellent. He arrived on time, and patiently worked for a few hours and all the things - changing brakes, replacing bulbs. He explained the work he did and showed how my car is different from other models. He also educated me to watch for potential repairs in the future. I would trust Honorios with any car service I have and look forward to hiring him again.

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.
