Hot oil smell coming from my car when I stop.
Mechanic said it is the Valve cover Gaskets it will cost $500 to repair. I hit a bump in the road the day before I started to get this hot oil smell. Does the Valve cover gaskets really sound like the problem? And also is the price normal for this type repair?

Get a second opinion if you doubt him.

Price is high. Shop around.
