The valve cover is a metal cover that is found on the very top of the engine. It's attached to the engine by a gasket made of rubber or cork and it seals the top of the engine and prevents 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 which will result in the top of the engine to 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.
If oil starts to leak on top of the engine and the valve cover becomes weak and brittle, it is very important to get it replaced. This is because if the engine is constantly losing oil, the engine can become damaged if you run the car for too long which in the long-term can be very costly and dangerous.
Rahim did a great job! He was very detailed, had all the appropriate tools, and explained to me what was wrong in an effective manner.
Colin was friendly, polite, and explained everything perfectly. In and out in under 30 minutes. Brilliant!
I had great service from Peter at Fiix on my Mini Cooper today. Peter arrived early and prepared. He was knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend Peter and Fiix. They are definitely the Uber of Mechanics.
Really great to have a mechanic do the winter tires right at the home. We have a small car so it would normally take 2 trips to bring the wheels to a garage to do. A real life saver. Thank you fiix.
Very good. knows what he is doing.
Richard arrived on time. Very courteous, customer focused, pleasant, and professional. Had the correct replacement part and specialized tools to get the job done efficiently and within the estimated time frame. He is licensed and he knows his stuff. I would highly recommend him going forward. First time using FIIX Mobile Auto Repair and the experience was worth recommending.
