Valve cover valves are usually leak proof and should be sealed when new.
But there are times when the seal may need to be replaced.
That’s the case with a valve cover gapping problem that was reported to Valve by a customer in Texas who recently purchased a new valve cover.
A customer who went by the handle of “Jared” had been using the valve cover for two years.
He had a problem with the valve valve seal, which was not sealed when he installed the valve in his 2018 Honda Civic.
He reported the issue to the company in December.
“It didn’t have any problems until about a month later when I started to see that the valve seal had been leaking,” Jared told TechRadars.
“I had it inspected by the company and they did a testing.
They found that the seal was leaking.”
Jared, who lives in San Antonio, said he purchased the cover in December and the company sent him a replacement.
“I had a chance to look at it and it was perfect.
I was very happy,” Jared said.”
They said that the new valve seal seal had not been tested yet.
They said that it was not as leak proof as they had expected it to be.
So that’s why I’m so happy with it.
I like it a lot more than the old one.”
Valve has since recalled the replacement valve cover from its warehouse in Austin, Texas, and is investigating whether the valve covers problem is related to the defect, a company spokesperson told Techradars.
