What Are Gaskets, And How They Are Maintained

Basic Auto Sales understands that as a responsible vehicle owner, you want to know important information about your vehicle's operation. Your vehicle has a number of gaskets that are essential for your vehicle's proper operation. These gaskets need to be maintained so that your vehicle stays running properly.

Gaskets are designed to keep fluids in your vehicle and to keep fluids from mixing together. Gaskets are most often made of rubber or metal. The major gaskets in your vehicle are the head gasket, the intake manifold gasket, the exhaust manifold gasket and the oil pan gasket. If you notice leakage around these gaskets, that is a sign that they need to be replaced.

The best way to maintain your gaskets is to have your vehicle routinely serviced. Make sure the coolant and the oil are changed on a regular basis. Have your vehicle checked for leaks during each service appointment.
