Tien

Tien was great, but the app/business made two errors. A. You switched mechanics on me at 9pm the night before. Tien was unaware of this switch and couldn't make it to my house in time when he found out the next morning. I understand you expect your mechanics to be responsive, but that's unrealistic...consequently the customer paid for it. B. A customer support rep reached out, with what I believe is an automated email, asking why I signed up but did not book an appointment. I had booked an appointment; this showed disorganization and hurt brand equity. All-in-all if Tien hadn't been awesome, quick, courteous my experience would have been very different. Positives: Very convenient service. I feel it should be cheaper with the reduced overhead of a mechanic shop, but with discount was very fair. Effective and quick, no hassle. Negatives: Y'all need a redesign on web. Haven't seen app, but web is kinda 2005-ish. Thanks for the oil change and I'll recommend y'all (and Tien) to some folks. Live long and prosper.

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.
