He called at 8AM (had a 1pm appointment) and informed me there was an earlier slot open, so I had my car fixed and ready to go by 10:30AM rather than having to wait all day! Great service and in great time.

I am so happy about my experience with yourmechanic.com. Casey was very knowledgeable, communicative, and professional. The cost of the work done was much lower than what I had been quoted at the repair shop. One thing I especially liked about Casey, was that he seemed real about what needed to be done ASAP and what I could work on at a later date. With other places, I feel like they word things in an alarming matter to try and get me to do it all at once, which I'm just not able to afford. I hope I have more experiences like this, as I will be booking all of my work through yourmechanic.com from now on! Thank you!

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.
