Second time used Meissner. They fixed my daughter's car after several other shops failed and she wanted to sell it. This time was more simple routine service and repairs which was done well.

Question Answered by Meissner Automotive
'valve Cover Gasket Replacement' Versus 'valve Cover Complete'? on 2007 BMW 328i
Unfortunately you have to fix both if they are leaking. If you just fix one leak, the leak that you did not fix, will just leak more. The engine is always under pressure. Picture a damn with two leaks. You plug one. What is going to happen to the other leak?
