ENGINE AUTO PARTS: VALVE COVER
Valve cover is a component of the engine block of the four-stroke internal combustion engine. There are a lot of engines that operate with valves, and they need to integrate the valves into the engine system. Valve cover’s function is to receive a portion of the valve train, namely the upper actuation elements. But it has one more very important function. It serves to prevent oil leakage from the engine and to avoid further air ingress into the engine. Some of valve covers have one more small cover. It is an oil filler hole for engine. There is more to come. A number of car models have valves that are operated via a single overhead camshaft. If this camshaft is driven by a chain, then the valve cover includes camshaft sprockets. The valve cover is placed on the cylinder head. In Addition, there is valve cover gasket, also known as a cylinder head gasket. In today's cars, the seal is made up almost entirely of rubber or plastic. In modern cars gaskets are mainly made of rubber or plastic. The valve cover should be always connected to the cylinder head. But the most important is the gasket to function and to be hermetic. Valve cover is a durable car part. But the gasket can leak. You can note this if you see wet spots that quickly become dark because of dust and dirt. If the gasket leaks, it is necessary to replace it. A non- specialist can also replace it. Gaskets and other car parts as valve cover, catalyst, air conditioner compressor you will find in our online shop.
Diagnostics of the component is quite complex and time-consuming, and requires the use of special measurement equipment, so it is better to be entrusted to professionals. It may be performed in several stages. First, geometrical parameters of the cylinder head elements - valve guide bushes and valves themselves - are measured, and their location relative to the cylinder head body is examined. Then, the state of the cooling cavity of the unit is assessed. Cracks, cavitations, porosity, and metal warping indicate the need of repair or replacement. To detect concealed damages, a special equipment is used which allows detecting leakage in cooling channels.
