What Can Go Wrong with Gaskets?

Every car has a number of gaskets of various sizes and substances. The purpose of these gaskets is the keep fluids within the car from coming together and causing the car to malfunction. Just as with other items on your car, a gasket can go bad and cause problems.

The major gaskets in your car are the head gasket, the intake manifold gasket, the exhaust manifold gasket and the oil pan gasket. When a gasket starts to go bad, you may notice some seepage or leakage around the gasket. If a gasket goes all the way out, it is said to have blown, and your car can suffer major damage.

The best way to prevent gasket problems is to have your vehicle serviced on a regular basis. If your vehicle needs service or repairs, come to our showroom at Cassill Motors Inc. The knowledgeable service department technicians can inspect gaskets and replace them if necessary.
