“Yes, James was all that and more. Initially James was supposed to come between 8 and 10am today (Tuesday). He sent a message to my phone to check if he could come earlier. I only responded to the message around 11pm on arrival home from work. He turned up promptly at 7am., did his job and was gone in a short space of time. He is a very friendly man and sounds very knowledgeable.“

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does a Rocker Cover Gasket do?

The rocker cover is the metal or composite cover on top of the engine that covers the rocker arms of the engine's cylinder head. The rocker cover gasket is sandwiched between the rocker cover and the cylinder head preventing oil leaks by sealing the two parts together.

How do you know there is something wrong with the Rocker Cover Gasket?

  • When the top or sides of the engine are covered in oil residue or debris.
  • When you can smell burning oil.
  • When patches of oil are visible in the area under the engine.
  • When the rocker cover has cracks.

When should you consider a Rocker Cover Gasket replacement?

Due to the significant temperature fluctuations the gasket has to endure it can become brittle and, ultimately, fail altogether. On these occasions the gasket will develop leaks which means oil can escape from the engine.

Over time the loss of oil can lead to an inadequate engine oil level which, in turn, can lead to potential engine damage. Should you experience an issue like this or those listed earlier, then it is advisable to have the rocker cover gasket inspected as soon as possible and, if necessary, have it replaced.

Seeing that the rocker cover gasket is a component that is especially prone to wear it should always be replaced as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

What happens during a Rocker Cover Gasket replacement?

  • Mechanic will inspect the rocker cover and the gasket.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the rocker cover gasket.
  • Mechanic will clean the rocker cover.
  • Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced.
  • Mechanic will run the engine and check for any leaks.
  • Mechanic will make any adjustments if necessary.

How much does a Rocker Cover Gasket replacement cost?

The cost of replacing the Rocker Cover Gasket depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement. Find out what you could save by having your Rocker Cover Gasket replaced by Clickmechanic, by selecting your car at the top of this page!
