Valve Cover Gasket Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Valve Cover Gasket all about?

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.

Keep in mind:

When the valve cover gasket is replaced, the valve cover should be inspected as well.

How it's done:

  • Inspect the valve cover for leaks.
  • Remove and replace the valve cover gasket(s) if faulty.

Our recommendation:

If you notice oil on the ground beneath your car, get your car inspected as soon as you can. Do not drive the car for too long with low engine oil. If they see an oil leak, most mechanics will inspect the valve cover gasket first. Schedule regular oil changes to minimize the sludge formation in your engine.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Valve Cover Gasket?

  • Oil is leaking.
  • Debris and oil around the valve cover.
  • Slight oil smell.
  • Oil found in spark plug wells.

How important is this service?

Your engine’s internal pieces are lubricated with oil. This oil needs to stay in the engine, because the engine relies on it, and it can be harmful if it leaks out. To keep the oil where it belongs, your engine is sealed in many places. On the top, your engine is sealed by the valve cover. This valve cover has a gasket (which is made out of rubber or cork), which seals the cover to the engine, and keeps any oil from leaking out.

If the gasket deteriorates, oil will begin to leak out. If the oil leaks out, your engine will not be properly lubricated, and serious engine damage can occur. Oil that leaks out through the valve cover gasket can also fall into the exhaust system and ignite an engine fire.

Chris

I thought I already posted a review the other day and it was such a good one too so hopefully, I can write a really good one for Chris as he definitely deserves 5++ stars. I am so grateful I came across YourMechanic while googling for an auto mechanic in my area. Love the convenience, the notifications, the efficiency and best of all, the fact that it is 30% less expensive compared to typical auto mechanics that have shops. The mechanic who service my zip code was Chris Allshouse. He is professional, honest, an expert in his field, knowledgeable, thorough and great with customer service to ensure customer satisfaction. My initial appointment was for 9 AM on Father's Day. He came a half hour early and explained/apologized to me that there was a mistake on the labor portion of the online quote. I have a V6 but the online estimate quoted me inline 6 so the labor was only 1 hour instead of 3. Anyhow, Chris explained what he would do and also assured me that he would have to re-schedule our appointment for the following day, will negotiate an additional discount on my behalf for the inconvenience as the discrepancy was not my fault. Everything that he promised was kept. . He came a half hour early the following day, repaired my valve cover gasket as needed and provided inspection report afterwards. I had such a great experience at a fair price and shared my experience and the referral code with the boyfriend, family and friends. Awesome job Chris and keep it up YourMechanic!

I do not trust my car repairs to anyone but Dan. He is always prompt, courteous, knowledgeable and does a great job at explaining what further services he recommends you have performed and how soon you should have them taken care of. You can trust him to always give you an honest and thorough assessment! I love the way I am able to have my car worked on at my office parking lot while I am working so I don't have to be without my car. This is an amazing concept having the mechanic come to you!
