Patrick

Patrick showed up early for our appointments, went over the issues of my car and laid out the options of what I could do afterwards. He is very down to earth and is honest about the problem at hand. My car was having a problem overheating so after inspecting the car and troubleshooting he said that the car might have to require work on it up to $800+ which they could do but he suggested that there were other cheaper options for me to try. I would totally recommend him.

Tien

I got a text saying Tien was on his way, so the five minutes he was late due to traffic and a part pick up didn't bother me at all. He did exactly the service I requested, plus an overview of my newly purchased used vehicle, and didn't try to sell me a bunch of extra services. I was given a quote of $171 when I made the appointment, and I was charged exactly $171 when the service was completed. Pep Boys gave me an estimate for the same service of c "$325, minimum" just last week! Tien did find an additional issue I need to take a look at, and gave me a reasonable explanation with pictures showing the area that needed attention. i'll be booking the service for that in a couple weeks. The ease of making an appointment and paying online, the convenience of them coming to me, the integrity of their quote being the actual price, and the thorough service provided will keep me coming back (and recommending to my friends) for all my maintenance and service needs!

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.
