Learning About Car Gaskets: Symptoms of a Blown Head Gasket

Have you noticed your car heating up more and more to extreme temperatures? You may have a bad head gasket that has worn out or become cracked. That can cause other damage to your vehicle and make it impossible to drive your car. The gasket is what forms a seal between the engine block and cylinder. If the heated compressed air isn't sealed, it could lead to the gasket being removed from the engine completely.

If you notice the engine heating up or see any coolant leaks, you could have a blown head gasket already. Gaskets can be fixed pretty quickly just by heading to a local mechanic. The services are typically under $100 to $200 depending on the make and model of your vehicle, as well as the amount of damage caused by the blown gasket.
