Gasket Failure and Maintenance

Gaskets are used in your vehicle to keep fluids in their proper place. Gaskets come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They can be made of steel, copper, rubber or other substances. When a gasket blows, there may be serious repercussions for your vehicle.

Before a gasket blows, there are often some warning signs. Sometimes, before a gasket blows you will notice that your engine may be overheating. Your engine may also not be accelerating properly. Some gaskets may start to leak before they go out completely. The best way to avoid a gasket failure is to make sure that all of your vehicle's fluids are at the proper level. It is also important that your vehicle is serviced regularly.
