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.

What a relief! I had been putting off the repair I needed because I didn't have a reliable mechanic to go to. After a successful experience finding a brake service online, I figured I'd try the same with a mechanic. The high ratings gave me the confidence to go ahead and set up an appointment. Patrick came right to my job and was all business. Took care of it and I was so pleased with the online feedback about my car afterwards. Thanks for a great experience! I'll be sure to spread the word.

Honorio

This is the best tune up and oil change on this car in last several years. We replaced CAP, wire, rotor, spark plugs, valve cover gasket, valve seal, and synthetic oil, oil filter. Honorio did a great job. I had this car tune up 10000 miles ago in dealer, but looks like dealer didn't replace all the needed parts for tune up. This time instead of go to dealer, I schedule with YourMechanic and ask Honorio to do tune up and oil change. Honorio did a great job, this car no longer emit smoke, and no longer miss fire, engine run smoothly now.

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!
