Ben

I tried another mobile mechanic service, and that mechanic told me that I had a blown head gasket, and the repairs would run $1,300! Within 20 minutes Ben found the problem and had my vehicle running...all it was is the rotor button screw had come loose and the rotor was not engaging. So $70 vs $1300! Needless to say, I'm a VERY happy camper! So many people today will try to take advantage of seniors, especially if they are on disability. But the honesty and integrity of this company is par excel lance! I would encourage anyone to use this service, instead of going to a shop or trusting shady backyard mechanics!

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.

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.
