Now I have a new mechanic and they say I need to remove and replacevalvecover
gasket what the difference and how do I know the cost of the new repair is 285.00

1 Answer


Do you see signs of oil leaking from around the top of the engine? If so then the valve cover gaskets need replacing. These gaskets are not normally all that hard to replace. That price sounds a little high but not all that bad. The head gasket is totally different and is a major job to replace.
