Casey was awesome. He arrive a little late, but considering the horrible traffic, totally understandable for a 7PM appointment. Explained the situation and get the work done quickly. Did courtesy inspection and suggested me to change the front pads as well since they start having speaking noise. Will schedule him for the front pad replacement sometime next week, if he is available :p

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.
