Car owners know how important routine maintenance is to the safety and longevity of their car, but some parts like gaskets are often overlooked. Below is an explanation of what gaskets are and how to care for them: 

  • Gaskets - Gaskets are one of the most important parts in your car and are responsible for creating a seal between surfaces to prevent fluids or gases from escaping or mixing.
  • Gasket Care - Over time gaskets can fail because they are exposed to chemicals and extreme temperatures. It is important to make sure you change your engine oil and coolant regularly to help prevent gaskets from prolonged exposure to harmful chemicals.
  • Replacement - Gaskets are relatively inexpensive parts, but are labor-intensive to replace and therefore can be an expensive to repair. Make sure you get a second opinion before replacing.
