Joe was early and very helpful. In fact after his visual inspection he found something that the dealer had not done correctly and saved me huge just on that alone. I am very pleased and waiting for a part to come in so he can repair that. I will be using Joe for all my car needs in the future. Very professional and knowledgable and went above and beyond.

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.
