From the moment the appointment was scheduled, I received phenomenal service! YourMechanic maintained consistent effective communication with me about my appointment and worked around all my issues, to include car being parked in parking garage, work schedule, not having consistent access to my cell phone due to security of building, etc. GREAT SERVICE! Eugenio arrived in a timely manner and utilized my requested means of communication (office phone). He met me in the middle (worked on my car in a street parking spot). He effectively diagnosed the issues and fixed the problems in a timely manner (total time to completion = 1 hour). I couldn't be happier with the way things went and I spent less than $100 on the amazing service. WILL DEFINITELY be using YourMechanic again in the future!

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.
