Ordered the parts, received what I ordered...very satisfied with the service...package came the day it was promised...my vehicle has been repaired and I will use A1 Auto again and recommend to family and friends. Outstanding!!!
Excellent Product
November 13, 2018
I had been having issues with my car for a while now. Looking for quality parts and at a decent price is hard to come across. Really like the site and the instructional videos on how to fix the issue. Since this purchase, I have purchased an upstream O2 sensor. My car is still not running; Not sure what could be causing the problem. I recently took it to Nissian and had a diagnostic test and the motor and transmission passed. I just need to find the right part to see what is causing the issue. I am looking to purchase the Exhaust Manifold with Catalytic Converter Assembly. One thing I do know, when every it do start, it will like it is brand new
Great Product, Great Price, Great Instructions

I am by no means a mechanic, so normally I would have had a mechanic replace my valve cover that was leaking oil into the spark plugs. After watching the 1a Auto video on YouTube, I decided to order the part and do the work myself. A job that would have cost me $1000 at the dealer, cost me $120 and 1 hour of my own time. No special tools needed. The car runs perfectly now. Thank you 1a Auto!

The parts were delivered on day they were promised ordering after midnight from California. The video was very detailed and made it very simple for a not every day mechanic to complete the job right. 100% satisfaction and no more oil in spark plugs.

Right from the start through to the end. Fast service. Correct date delivered. Awesome video to follow. I'm in my fifties (female). Tired of waiting for a mechanic. I changed this myself. It took me 2 hours...but I did it. I learned a lot by the video that was made by 1A Auto.??

Customer Q&A
Ask a question to 1A Auto customers who purchased the product
Does this kit include the spark plug tube seals also?
December 8, 2018
Spark plug tube seals are built in the valve cover gasket non serviceable non-removable that's why you have to buy the whole valve cover
December 8, 2018
Coil seals , yes
December 8, 2018
Yes they are intergrated into the valve cover all that's not included is the gasket maker for the front to seal properly
December 9, 2018
Are you referring to the spark plug gaskets? If so then...Yes, because they are a part of the valve cover. On my Nissan, only my spark plug gaskets had gone bad, but I had to replace the whole valve cover because they are integrated into the valve cover. Hope this helps.
December 9, 2018
The parts are apart of the valve cover so they are included within the kit.
December 9, 2018
Yes. The spark plug tube seals are built into the plastic piece.
December 10, 2018
Is the pcv valve included?
March 14, 2019
The PCV valve will not come included in this kit.
