Casey was knowledgable about the services performed on my car. He recommended future services and was honest about how urgently I needed to get these taken care of. He took the time to answer my questions and explain why he made the recommendations he did. Most importantly, he wasn't pushy about the recommended services/didn't try to upsell. This was my first time using YourMechanic and I was impressed with how convenient and affordable the service is. Definitely will use them again.

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.
