Eugenio

Within one day of the quote, he arrived on time to replace the serpentine belt on my van, but diagnosed a bigger problem which was why it broke in the first place. He had to come back two additional times, but arrived on time each time. The overall cost, while three time more than quoted, was still much cheaper than I would have paid at the shop. He left the area clean and we are completely satisfied. Would definitely use him and this service again.

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.
