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.

Without a doubt Michael is the best mechanic in Charlotte!!! He showed up an Hour early for my appointment because he knew everything I was going through was last minute and wanted to get to me as soon as possible!! My car was stranded at a friend's house and was not there when he arrived but he basically completed my service by the time I had arrived (still 40 minutes before my scheduled time) and was nice enough to look at my friends car while he was waiting on my keys to finish up with my appointment!! My friend needed almost 3 bottles of transmission fluid because it was so empty and Michael happily filled his transmission with fluid he had on him...Free of charge!! And diagnosed my friends car with his recommendations for that as well. Honestly can not say how how I am Michael is my Only mechanic!! He is probably the nicest guy ever, comes Fully equipped with everything possibly needed for mechanics, is extremely informative, best person I have met at timeliness, and is 100% trustworthy!!! If you have the luxury or getting Michael consider yourself lucky!!! Great great great guy!!!!

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.
