Normally I do not confess to auto techs that I spent 40 years as a GM Service Manager and Service Advisor. BUT, Brikk was so pleasant and likable, our conversation was that of cars. He not only fixed my problem, but was sure to check other items on my car that I had not complained about. As I always tell everyone, there is but one thing that surpasses great customer service, and that is MORE of it...Thank you Brikk for a job well done, and if I ever need your service again, consider your phone ringing...Thanks

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.
