Chris was a pleasure to work with. He had the tools and ability to R&R my Crankshaft & Camshaft Position Sensors without dropping the screw so he was able to get the job done quickly. It looks like I've found myself a new mechanic to work on my car's engine when it's cool . Thanks Chris.

So far the oil leak only appeared the day after. Will call you for the next needed services, as we have 4 MB~s at home. When possible, let me know of the cost of changing oil and filter on the 1987 MB 560SL and the 1988 MB 560SL.

Needed my front struts replaced. Shaun was originally unable to remove the springs from the strut due to the spring's high tension - he took the shocks back to his place where he had an air compressor and finished the job before I got out of work. All throughout this he remained intention about staying communicative - very professional! I'd say - a good job! Car's working fine now.

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.
