I took advantage of an Amazon offer for a promotional charge for an oil change/tire rotation. Joshua called about an hour before our appointment and said that he was running early and could he come by earlier than scheduled, which worked out great for me. I was very impressed by Joshua's knowledge and friendly nature. Having the mechanic come to the house to make repairs is a neat concept which also worked out very well for us. I was very pleased.

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.
