I would vote 6 stars if I could. The man is awesome. He spent 1hr ish with traffic and then tried to find my tricky complex driveway entrance into my apartment but then he made jokes about it. Funny guy, straightforward, clear and simple explanations to someone who doesn't know anything about car like me, passionate with his work, fast and professional. 1000/10 would work with him again.

Jeffrey is truly awesome. If you're having service done by him, I can say he will make things right if they weren't done right the first time, but I highly doubt he would do something wrong the first time. Jeffrey has some of the best values I've seen from someone in a long time. Jeffrey would be my personal mechanic all the time if I could choose him!

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.
