Gaskets Help Keep Fluids Separated

One of the most important parts of a vehicle's engine is also one of the simplest, a gasket. All vehicles have multiple different types of gaskets, but their functionality is essentially the same regardless, and that is to provide an impenetrable seal between two different parts of your vehicles.

The reason why gaskets are so important, and why it is critical that they maintain a perfect seal, is because they prevent different fluids from mixing or fluids entering a part of the engine that they could do damage to. If fluids like antifreeze were to make their way into your engine, it could result in massive damages to your cylinders or engine block.

Regular and routine maintenance are the best ways to extend the life of your vehicle's various gaskets. However, no matter how well-maintained a car is, it will at some point require one or more gaskets to be replaced. Bring your vehicle to our auto service station here at Napleton's Autowerks, Inc. (Loves Park) if you feel you may have a gasket failing.
