Noe was very knowledgeable and easy to talk with. His experience shines through - he knew exactly what he was doing and he made quick and confident assessments of the vehicle. Hands down one of the best mechanics I've ever worked with. I don't have more words because he just knew what he was doing, and he executed the job quickly and efficiently. And it's awesome that he was 30 mins early!

Casey changed valve cover gaskets on my 2001 Subaru six cylinder engine. A very time consuming job. He arrived promptly and worked diligently to get the job done. I recommend him for any work that is needed to be done. My job was something I did not want to do myself and Casey performed better than I could have expected. Will use him again if the need arises.

It was 9AM appointment at Sunday Morning, as oil change was about 2k miles overdue. I need to use my car a few hours later. He gave me on my cell at 8:53AM from my drive way. That is the 1st pleasant surprise. On time service! He said it would take 1 hour or so to change engine oil and rotate tires. Then, at the end of service, he showed me a few of pictures he took, while he worked on my car to give me an overall condition. While I was having a discussion with him for a few of potential problem areas, I liked a way he talk and is doing a business with me. He is a straight talk person. He mentioned to me this and this would not need a repair service now. However, that one needs to be done. I know my car and have been worked on my trustworthy car many years for many parts. He won't try to sell for everything, but only sell what I do need. I agreed his points. I appreciate his honesty and expertise. If I come back again to get service through this yourmechanics.com, I would choose him, definitely. Oh... He may be work only over a weekend, as he works weekday job at other places. If you need to grep him, go ahead to get a service from him for weekend, until he put more hours into weekday service call. Good job Pete!

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.
