Ben was fantastic! He arrived early which was a pleasant surprise. Our anticipated service time was around two and a half hours, but he was done in about one hour. He worked quickly, efficiently, and at the end explained everything thoroughly. He showed us the new and old parts, walked us through the report, and explained what he thought the next step in maintaining our vehicle should be. This was our first time using the Your Mechanic service and Ben completely sold us on it!

Best. Wouldn't trust anyone else with my car except for "Ricky". He knows what he's doing, gets to the point and wants to get your car up and running. Very friendly and understanding, very clear when it comes to explaining your car. I highly recommend him to anyone with car issues. I am extremely satisfied with his service.

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.
