Consider the Importance of Your Car's Gaskets

Car owners who understand what is going on under their hood tend to get more out of their vehicle before it's on to the next one. That is why we need to be sure that you understand the basics of a lesser-known part of the engine: the gaskets.

Gaskets can be thought of as a plug to ensure no oil, or other fluids escape between to surfaces that touch within the engine. Gaskets are estimated by experts to last roughly 10 years or 200,000 miles, whichever should come first. These numbers can be lower, however, if you do not properly fill your oil and coolant to the owner's manual recommended levels or frequently expose your vehicle to extremely high temperatures. Both of these things can degrade gaskets much faster than normal.
