UNDERSTANDING ENGINE GASKETS
While you may get regular oil changes, tire rotations and check under the hood for low fluids, it’s important to not neglect routine inspections. So many elements in our engine that we take for granted, from belts to gaskets, perform admirably under tough conditions, but even they can eventually fail.
Gaskets serve a purpose not unlike a fence, corralling certain areas that need to remain clean or separating fluids from gases. Engine gaskets are made from durable materials like metal or silicone, but they can also be made out of surprising materials like paper. When some gaskets fail, it may be a minor annoyance; others can bring your car to an immediate halt, which is why regular inspections are so important.
Stay ahead of the game by bringing your engine in to be checked by one of our competent technicians, and keep your vehicle’s gaskets performing their very best.
