Kyle again did outstanding work. For some reason I had the wrong part. He took it back to exchange and the Auto store was out of stock. The nearest store that had one in stock was THIRTEEN miles away. Kyle was kind enough to drive that far, for the replacement. In my book, he is one kind and professional person.

Roland

Outstanding. Roland arrived a few minutes before the scheduled time. Rang my bell and introduced himself. I took him to the car which was in my garage. He proceeded to bring in his equipment and when set-up, he began. Besides the work I contracted for he looked over the entire vehicle and pointed out several items that needed to be watched. He was extremely pleasant and he cleaned up after himself and when done, I would never had known he was there .... he left the garage spotless. I'm extremely impressed with his professionalism and his expertise. I would highly recommend his services.

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.
