Understanding Automobile Gaskets

Automobile gaskets are types of seals used to hold fluids as well as to maintain pressure and to prevent debris from entering an engine. Gaskets in good condition are absolutely vital for the proper operation of an engine.

Some gaskets inside a car are within the engine. Other gaskets connect the engine to other components of a car. The most common types of gaskets contained in an automobile include main bearing gaskets, cylinder head gaskets, intake and exhaust manifold gaskets, and camshaft gaskets.

A faulty or damages gasket can result in serious issues as well as damage to a car, if not properly addressed. In the grand scheme of things, gaskets are most properly replaced by an experienced, trained professional.
