Valve Cover Gaskets Replacement

The valve cover is found on very top of the engine 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 dry and brittle and even break. If the gasket is worn out, it will leak engine oil and the top of the engine will get covered in oil. Since the engine is losing oil, running the car for too long can cause engine damage.
