Alex did a great job!! While replacing the alternator he noticed the drive belt was cracked down the middle and alerted us that would be easy to fix at the time, with not much more additional cost. The really good point to that is it would have cost a considerable amount of money to have the problem fixed later, if it had not been fixed. I happened upon Your Mechanic by chance, gave it a try, and now I am sold. I am also telling all my friends about it. I wish I had know about this sooner.

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.
