U guys get low marks because I don't know how many times I need to say this. I don't have a Volvo. It was a BMW. Your inability to respond and or correct this has me wondering, what else do u guys overlook and really don't care ? This small stuff should make ya sweat. But I doubt it. Until U correct, you will never vault to the upper levels of customer service. No wonder my car didn't get fixed. U think it's a Volvo

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.
