Honda Valve Cover
The Honda valve cover is a long plastic or metal lid mounted on top of the cylinder head of Honda vehicles using engines with overhead camshaft. There can be one or two valve covers in a vehicle depending on the configuration of the engine, or more specifically on the number of cylinder heads the engine has. Valve covers are also removable to allow for easier adjustment of valves.
So what happens when the valve cover of your Honda gets damaged? Damages in the Honda valve covers would not only affect the valve train components of the engine. Essentially, all engine components that make use of lubricant oil will be affected. The most common effect of valve cover damage is oil leaks and if these leaks are kept unchecked, it may result to excessive oil loss, which in turn would cause engine parts malfunction.
