Gaskets Explained

You probably know that your car has gaskets, but you might not know what they do. If you understand your car's inner workings, you can make better service decisions, so we are happy to tell you more about gaskets.

For cars, gaskets are vital. They form seals between two surfaces. Without gaskets, liquids and gasses would mix in your car's engine and cause it to run poorly. You may have heard of head gaskets or intake manifold gaskets, for example. Manufacturers use rubber and thin, metal layers to construct gaskets, and those substances eventually wear and fail. Thus, you should periodically check for gasket failure. Look for bubbling around your radiator or a substance resembling mayonnaise in your motor oil. Also, keeping service appointments helps prolong gaskets' lives.
