Grzegorz Kilon arrived 35 minutes late. When he arrived, he did not have the filter. He came back 10:35 AM from the supposedly 9 AM appointment. Would have avoided the delay if he had it in the beginning. Also, PENZOIL was indicated that was used in receipt. He used an O'Reilly brand oil.

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.
