Robert was on time. He cleaned up the area after fixing the car. And, Robert took a few minutes to explain what would happen during the job, as well as what other future work might be necessary. Courteous, focused, efficient yet conversational. Thank you Robert for getting this vehicle mobile again.

Lucas

I had an electrical problem with my car (wouldn't start). I thought it went beyond the typical dead battery situation (battery wouldn't take a jump, there were no preceeding hard starts), so I wanted everything tested. It was convenient to have him come to the car, instead of me taking the car to a shop (since it wouldn't start, we were probably looking at towing). I could have changed the battery out myself, but I wouldn't have known if there was some underlying issue or not (starter, generator, alternator). It turned out that it just was the battery (battery was bad, needed to be replaced), although Lucas tested everything, so now I have some peace of mind that it's not going to happen again.

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.
