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.

Richard was so knowledgeable and generous with his information. In my experience as a woman, mechanics have a tendency to kind of talk down and be condescending. Richard made every effort to educate me and answer all of my questions. He also didn't think twice about going under the car when it was just starting to rain - which was impressive in and of itself.

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.
