Joshua did a great job for us replacing the air conditioning compressor on a 2001 Saturn L200. He arrived on time and did the job in my driveway for the estimated amount - which was several hundred dollars less than two other estimates. He also did an inspection of the car to identify any other items that may need attention. It was the best car repair experience I've ever had.

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.
