Valve Cover Gasket Inspection

Photo of valve cover gasketYour valve cover is the metal top of your engine. It is visible once you lift the hood. The valve cover gasket is what seals this and the bottom part of your engine together, creating a tight seal to prevent leaks of much needed oil. However, due to the nature of an engine and the heat it can generate, these pieces tend to wear and become brittle, breaking and springing leaks. 

Here are a couple of ways to check if your valve cover gasket is weakening or broken:

  • Your vehicle accumulates a puddle of oil beneath it when it is stationary
  • There is a smell of oil in or around your car
  • When inspecting your engine, you notice oil or debris around the valve cover itself
  • Your spark plumbs and their wells have oil within them
