Why are Gaskets so Important?

March 15th, 2018 by


Even the smallest components of an engine help it to function properly. Although they are easy to overlook, gaskets are an essential part of your car’s design, and while they are engineered to be durable, they eventually age and need to be replaced.

Gaskets function as a seal where two separate engine parts meet. They provide a barrier that keeps unwanted liquids or gases from mixing inside your engine. If a gasket fails in the exhaust system, for example, you may see white smoke emerging from the tailpipe. This sort of failure should be addressed immediately by a qualified mechanic.
