Jason was exceptional. For a simple oil change/tire rotation he was pretty thorough. Also passed on various issues he encountered working on my model of cars.

I am leaving 4.5 stars rounded up to 5, because Noe really appears to be a skilled mechanic and knows a lot about cars. What is missing for that half star - tire rotation needs sensor resetting on my car, which was not done. Oil change requires oil life % status reset, which I can do easily, but anyways.

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.
