Jason

Giving your car to service is in my mind the biggest hassle. Having said that, I have faced some bad experiences with simple things like Oil Changes @ Midas, and other corporate brands near my home. When my brother in law recommended me to Jason, I was in two minds, but I decided to give it a shot. Jason was fantastic. He was very detsiled, patient and helpful in explaining what oil changes are, how synthetic oils have evolved over the years, and which oils are best suited for my vehicle in today's times. I loved that knowledge he had. I will go to Jason for every car related service from this point on ! I would highly recommend him for any type of service you need.

Blake

Blake did a great job and explained many things to me since I at one time intended to do the work myself. He had unique solutions to certain problems such as an over tight axle bolt and was even willing to try minor suggestions when things didn't go a certain way. I was impressed by his enthusiasm, knowledge, experience and focus from start to successful test drive. Overall, because of Blake I found the YourMechanic.com experience very positive and will recommend the service to my friends. It saved me significant money from dealer and independent bids and it was quality work.

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.
