I was a little worried at first never having used yourmechanic.com and having a timing belt and water pump replaced is no small task, but Pete was more then Up to the challenge. Pete was friendly but professional and immediately got to work and everything went smoothly. Pete did run into a small issue with some rusty bolts when he was installing the new water pump but was able to locate some new ones and finish the job In a timely matter. Overall i am very happy with the service provided and would recommend it to others.

I marked Timothy arriving on time. Actually, he was 20 minutes late but he communicated properly that he was going to be late and when he was in transit. That was acceptable to me. He proceeded with the analysis without getting distracted by my frequent questions and comments. I basically only needed the oil change service but I appreciate having a to-do list with further needed repairs as I can afford them. The service is a needed alternative to dealer and independent shops, which are loaded with facility and management overhead. Keep up the good 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.
