“I need to get my car engine repaired. I was driving my car around Los Angeles and smoke started coming out of the engine. When I opened up the engine bay it looked like something may be leaking onto something hot.”
Los Angeles Mechanic:
Most likely your valve covers are leaking oil on to the exhaust. All it takes is for one drop of oil to hit the manifold and it looks like your car is on fire. You see the smoke coming and it scares the heck out of you. The smell is burning oil. It’s a real bitter type of smell. The valve cover gaskets have to be replaced because they are leaking oil directly onto the exhaust manifold.
Your engine is leaking oil but It probably looks worse then it is. It has to be repaired so that you can drive the car without the smell and without the smoke coming around. Schedule your appointment for automotive repair with Westside Mercedes to replace your valve cover gaskets.
Replace Valve Cover Gaskets
If the car has been sitting for long periods of time, often times the valve cover gaskets don’t seal properly. The valve cover gaskets are rubber so they get hard and don’t seal properly between the top of the cylinder head and the cover. The valve cover gaskets have to be replaced both on the left bank and the right bank.
