I used Grzegorz twice now. First time to do a 50K mile maintenance and the second to replace our rear brake pads and air filter. After the first time, he noticed the brake pads and that one of my tires had a bubble in the side wall. When I took the car elsewhere to replace the tire, I asked them to also double check the condition of the air filter and brake pads just to see if they came back with the same recommendations. Turns out they did and YourMechanic was much cheaper to have it done (not to mention more convenient). So that's when I asked them to send him again. He arrives on time and texted me updates through the entire process. Really great experience.

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.
