Learn What Gaskets Do And What Are Signs Of Gasket Wear

Gaskets are devices that are put over pipes and tubes that carry oil and chemicals in your vehicle. They form a barrier to prevent these fluids from leaking out or mixing with other liquids. Gaskets are usually made out of steel, rubber or copper. They are designed to be an exact fit over the pipes or tubes they cover, to ensure an impenetrable seal is placed over them.

Gaskets can get damaged or worn over time. Things such as the engine overheating, and not replacing oil and fluids at regular intervals can lead to gasket damage. They may also need to be tightened over time as well. Signs of gasket failure can include leaking coolant or other fluids mixing with the motor oil.
