I had a pre purchase car inspection done on the car and Russell did a thorough job looking over the car. He found a few small things that needed to be fixed and overall recommended that I buy that car and made me feel confident about my decision.

On time, polite, and personable, Jason was quick and efficient too! This was my first mobile oil change and I may never go to a shop for this service again! So easy! On top of that he did the ## point inspection and reported that everything looked good, I've had so many mechanics push extras/add ons on me before. It was refreshing to not be taken for a ride. I'll be calling again in 5,000 miles!

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.
