Grzegorz was awesome, thorough, and very knowledgeable... He did oil change for my car, took pictures and identify all problems with the car in his 50-point inspection report. Would highly recommend Grzegorz for your next automotive service.

Jeff was absolutely friendly, great guy. He did his best to figure out what was wrong with the Volvo. He determined that the fan was not coming on when it was suppose to. Jeff gave us a thorough explanation what he thought was going on and suggested that we take the Volvo to the Volvo dealer ship. If needed we will definitely call and ask for Jeff to come out and service our other vehicle. Thank you! Michelle

This was my first experience with Your Mechanic and I will return again. There was a slight glitch with the system, but Christopher made sure everything was straightened out regarding the price before he even began the service. Christopher was extremely professional and courteous. As an aside, he was the first person EVER to turn off the annoying service light. Highly recommend!

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.
