The Role of Your Vehicle's Head Gasket

Head gaskets seal the engine block and cylinder head. They prevent coolant fluid and motor oil from mixing while allowing for maximum combustion compression. Head gasket damage spells big trouble for the engine as fluids should not mix, and the engine requires maximum compression to generate power. The engine should be inspected for leaks around the head gasket as recommended and the head gasket repaired promptly if damaged.

Head Gasket Maintenance

Head gaskets should be inspected at major service intervals with leaking fluid as the telltale sign of trouble. While they cannot be inspected directly, the technician knows what to look for when inspecting the engine for leaks. It is also essential to get an inspection if you detect any of the warning signs of head gasket trouble. Prompt maintenance can be the difference between getting head gasket repairs versus needing a full replacement service.

What are the Warning Signs of Head Gasket Trouble?

Here are the telltale warning signs of blown head gaskets needing replacement service:

  • Coolant found puddled under the vehicle - leaking from beneath the exhaust gasket
  • Steam exiting the engine bay
  • Exhaust smoke looks whiter than normal
  • Coolant is low but without any obvious signs of leaking
  • Radiator or coolant fluid reservoir has bubbling
  • Rough engine idle
  • Engine overheating
  • Dashboard warning light
