Patrick
27 years of experience
Patrick was hands down the best car repair experience I've ever had. He is honest, direct and very communicative through the whole process. I had to reschedule several time due to delays in receiving a part and he was very understanding and helpful in arranging a time/day that worked for both. During the repair he was always explaining and answering questions, allowing me to understand what the problem was and how certain things worked. Even though I hope there are no new major problems that arise, I still have a few minor things to fix and rest assured I will be booking them with Patrick. Sincere thanks Pat!

Brandon

My experience with Brandon was extremely good. His customer service was top notch. I was actually scheduled to get a lot more done than expected but he told me that all my axle needed was some tightening around the bolts because who put them in before didn't put them on correctly. He also gave me a reference of what size bolts I would need to replace it with and he also recommended a few other things for my Saturn. The price was very reasonable. What sets Brandon apart from other mechanics is his customer service, knowledge and his attention to detail. I had a really good experience. I highly recommend him.

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.
