Valve Cover : The valve cover is the cover that encloses the valve spring area of the engine. This cover keeps oil inside the engine which helps lubricate the tops of the valves, rockers and or overhead camshafts. This cover may have to be removed when a valve adjustment is performed. Valve covers are made out of plastic, aluminum or steel.
Valve covers typically do not fail, however, the gasket may fail. A valve cover can warp from heat, or even get cracked. If a valve cover is damaged it will leak oil. When you need a valve cover replaced or just a valve cover resealed, check out the mechanics at Guy’s Automotive.
