Gaskets Play an Important Role in Your Vehicle's Operation

There are many components that go into the proper operation of a vehicle. Though many of these may seem like they aren't that important, they do play an important role and most dealers want their customers to have at least some general knowledge of the components that make up their vehicle. The gasket is such a component.

Gaskets help establish a barrier between surfaces that can not be breached by fluids or gases. Generally speaking, gaskets are flat and are composed of multilayered steel in 2 to 5 layers. There are 4 common types of gaskets used in vehicles. They are the head gasket, the intake manifold gasket, exhaust manifold gasket, and the oil pan gasket. There are signs or a failing gasket and steps that can be taken to prevent gaskets from failing.
