Lucas was the best! He told me exactly what needed to be done - and how inexpensively! I was expecting to spend about $1000 on a replacement axle - but when he showed me the pieces that needed replacing, they only came out to just over $100! He is an incredibly qualified, honest, and wonderful mechanic. I would love to have him service my car again and cannot recommend YourMechanic.com enough to all of my friends.

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.
