Grzegorz was exactly what i was looking for. My sons Porsche 914 was driven every day up to five years ago then had some fuel injector issues and has sat idle for five years not able to start. I had trouble finding a 914 mechanic (rare) who would get it going let alone come to the house! Grzegorz went through the basic engine and got it running in an hour. I have him coming back for a full tune up. If you are looking fro a very trustworthy mechanic , Grzegorz is your man

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.
