Russell

Russ was my mechanic for an appointment I made for an Oil Change and while he worked on that I expressed some concerns about my car overheating. He listened to my thoughts on what was happening and the research I had done to diagnois the issue. He willingly checked on a few things and validated the source of the problem. Furthermore he bled the air out of my clutch for free. Russ was knowledgeable, efficient and provided excellent service. He provided me with a memorable and positive first impression of himself and Your Mechanic as a company. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an honest mechanic who will do an impeccable job and who will ensure the job is done right the first time.

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.
