I had an excellent experience with Joshua! He came out to my office so that I wouldn't have to take time off work. He arrived early and was very friendly and professional when we met. After completing the inspection, fixing some bulbs, adjusting my tires, changing the oil, and completing a few other tasks (all in the parking lot at my work!), he called to let me know he was done. I met him back in the parking lot and he took the time to walk me through everything he checked and fixed. He gave me tips on what I should keep an eye on in the coming year and what things I should be checking regularly. I would absolutely refer any friends, colleagues, and family to contact him for professional, reliable service. Thanks Joshua!

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.
