Tien was great. He serviced the car perfectly and gave me advice on other services I may need in the future. He accepted this job when others declined. He has a strong work ethic and follows through. He obviously knows his craft and did a great job on getting my daughter's car back on the road. I would recommend him without reservation. Thanks Tien for doing a great job.

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.
