I paid for a pre-purchase inspection, and he found faults with the car, such as the a/c not working in all the vents which I didn't even notice myself. I rang him a few times with questions on the vehicle to ask for his advice, and he was so friendly and happy to help! The best mechanic I've ever dealt with!

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.
