This turned out to be a great deal. I bought a Groupon for an oil change and Patrick came to my place of work and changed my oil in the parking lot. No waiting around for an hour at Quick Lube and I got it for half price. Outstanding!!

Tien

Tien was great. He listened to what I had to say as far as the symptoms the car was having, rather than shut me out like other mechanics will do. He was very knowledgable and explained very well his diagnostic and most importantly he was able to figure out the issue when other mechanics could not figure it out. I would definitely recommend 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.
