Valve Cover Gasket Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Valve Cover Gasket all about?

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.

Keep in mind:

When the valve cover gasket is replaced, the valve cover should be inspected as well.

How it's done:

  • Inspect the valve cover for leaks.
  • Remove and replace the valve cover gasket(s) if faulty.

Our recommendation:

If you notice oil on the ground beneath your car, get your car inspected as soon as you can. Do not drive the car for too long with low engine oil. If they see an oil leak, most mechanics will inspect the valve cover gasket first. Schedule regular oil changes to minimize the sludge formation in your engine.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Valve Cover Gasket?

  • Oil is leaking.
  • Debris and oil around the valve cover.
  • Slight oil smell.
  • Oil found in spark plug wells.

How important is this service?

Your engine’s internal pieces are lubricated with oil. This oil needs to stay in the engine, because the engine relies on it, and it can be harmful if it leaks out. To keep the oil where it belongs, your engine is sealed in many places. On the top, your engine is sealed by the valve cover. This valve cover has a gasket (which is made out of rubber or cork), which seals the cover to the engine, and keeps any oil from leaking out.

If the gasket deteriorates, oil will begin to leak out. If the oil leaks out, your engine will not be properly lubricated, and serious engine damage can occur. Oil that leaks out through the valve cover gasket can also fall into the exhaust system and ignite an engine fire.

Lucas
12 years of experience
I had battery trouble, needed a new battery. Lucas went to an auto parts store to replace my battery, but my car's preferred model wasn't there. He got the 2nd model, so I could drive for the day, then came back the next day with the preferred model when it was in and switched it out. It was important because my battery is in the trunk; it's possible the 2nd model wouldn't have vented correctly, and if not, it would have been in the trunk (in the car). So he made it possible for me to drive while waiting, and then replaced the battery as soon as he could, making an extra visit to our house. Great service.

Alfredo

He called and asked if he could come early, which was perfect! When he arrived, he was so personable and very friendly. Great conversation, which it made it that much more comfortable. He was very patient with my car and let me know exactly what was wrong, verbally and physically. I will be seeing him again tomorrow to get my car worked on and I am that much more comfortable with that happening. I work Mon-Friday an hour and half away from home, so this idea was perfect! Thank you so much! Will be using from now on!
