Valve Cover Gasket Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Valve Cover Gasket all about?

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.

Keep in mind:

When the valve cover gasket is replaced, the valve cover should be inspected as well.

How it's done:

  • Inspect the valve cover for leaks.
  • Remove and replace the valve cover gasket(s) if faulty.

Our recommendation:

If you notice oil on the ground beneath your car, get your car inspected as soon as you can. Do not drive the car for too long with low engine oil. If they see an oil leak, most mechanics will inspect the valve cover gasket first. Schedule regular oil changes to minimize the sludge formation in your engine.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Valve Cover Gasket?

  • Oil is leaking.
  • Debris and oil around the valve cover.
  • Slight oil smell.
  • Oil found in spark plug wells.

How important is this service?

Your engine’s internal pieces are lubricated with oil. This oil needs to stay in the engine, because the engine relies on it, and it can be harmful if it leaks out. To keep the oil where it belongs, your engine is sealed in many places. On the top, your engine is sealed by the valve cover. This valve cover has a gasket (which is made out of rubber or cork), which seals the cover to the engine, and keeps any oil from leaking out.

If the gasket deteriorates, oil will begin to leak out. If the oil leaks out, your engine will not be properly lubricated, and serious engine damage can occur. Oil that leaks out through the valve cover gasket can also fall into the exhaust system and ignite an engine fire.

Dan

I was at work, but my son was home when Dan came to fix the car. Dan called me the night before to confirm that he would be here this morning and that he had the needed part. According to my son, he arrived a little early, got right to work, was very friendly. I would probably request Dan the next time I use this service. Hard to rate on trustworthiness, but my car is definitely fixed, and it didn't cost me a penny more than I was quoted!

Jason
13 years of experience
This Timing belt and spark plug replacement for a Mitsubishi V6 SUV is a hard job. Jason knew what he was doing and was methodical and deliberate. He also has the experience with the newer pollution plumbing that was in the engine bay. Very professional, fully equipped and patient. Things can go wrong with tough jobs and a mechanic with little or no patience can get sloppy. Jason was not so the tough job was done well. To future customers: If the mechanic is going to be on the job for a while (and you feel like he's a decent person), offer snacks, a small meal, something to drink. It just establishes goodwill between you and the mechanic. Treat them well and hopefully, they reciprocate by doing the best they can for you.

Quite frankly, the best mechanic I've ever had in my life. William showed a level of knowledge and unprecedented professionalism that is all too rare in traditional shops. From the moment he arrived, to the moment he left, he was knowledgeable, courteous, and fair. Won't go anywhere else. 5/5, will tell everyone.
