Check Your Car's Gaskets

As a service to our clients, we offer informative blog posts. This post will educate you about gaskets.

No matter what you drive, you will find gaskets in its systems. These parts separate gasses and fluids that should not mix within your engine. Common gaskets include the head gasket, the intake manifold gasket and the exhaust manifold gasket. Car companies use rubber and thin layers of steel to produce gaskets that create excellent seals. Alas, like most substances, these materials wear and fail. To extend your car's gaskets' longevity follow your owner's manual's maintenance advice. Also, you can check your car for gasket failure. Look for a substance similar to mayonnaise in your engine's oil, or check your radiator, with the engine running, for foam.
