Robert

Very satisfied. Robert diagnosed the problem correctly and fixed it on the spot. He was courteous and helpful, and explained clearly what he was going to do, and why. He also gave me an estimate for some necessary further work, and showed me why that also needs to be done eventually. He is obviously a competent mechanic and understands the electronics involved. I would be glad to work with him 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.
