Patrick did a good job, a quick job, and it appears everything was done correctly. I do have a vibration when the car idles, however that is very noticeable. I attribute this to the aftermarket half shafts, though.....not Patrick's work in installing them. He suggested my brakes needed work, which I already knew about, but he provided me a quote on them without me having to ask. I would definitely use Patrick again.

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.
