Ben

First off, I don't ever write reviews for anything but Ben did such an incredible job that I had to. He came early, and was very polite. He was very professional and clearly knew what he was talking about. Since I have a VW Beetle, its hard to find a mechanic who knows about these cars. He explained everything he was doing in order to find the problem, and it only took him about 15 minutes. Very fast and experienced. I booked my service appointment with him too because I know he will do a great job. Overall great experience with Ben and would definitely recommend him to my friends.

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.
