Tom

Tom was very helpful and very knowledgable in VW and made sure that I understood what was going on with my Jetta. I had a lot of annoying questions, but he was pretty patient in hearing me out about my concerns and didn't judge me on the current conditions of my car despite it surviving my college years. He also gave me some advice on how to better care for my car in which I will definitely take! He will probably be my go-to VW guy since I have a second vehicle.

Martin was quick to call and tell me that status of his arrival time and when he was done he talked to me over the phone to tell me what he found during his inspection and to make sure I didn't have any other questions. Happy with my first service.

Vehicle was diagnosed as defective ignition coil, which had been replaced late April. Kyle said this part under warranty & would be available by Monday, Memorial Day. We didn't hear from anyone, so we finally bought the part & replaced ourselves because we only have one car. It was a bit disappointing. We did try to reach YourMechanic several times before fixing the problem that was under warranty ourselves.

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.
