Is It Time for a Gasket Inspection?

Gaskets are rubber pieces that form a tight seal between different parts of your engine. They help keep fluids in place, keep gases in, and sometimes, keep dirt and dust out of vital components.

Many gaskets are made of rubber, but they can also be made from copper or steel. Gaskets can become damaged over time from chemical exposure, heat and extreme pressure. When a gasket begins to leak, it can cause fluid levels in the component to become low. This can damage parts due to friction and heat and can cause pieces to break off. That is why it is essential to keep your gaskets in good shape and your fluids at proper levels.

Damage from faulty gaskets can become expensive quickly. It is a good idea to bring your car into Land Rover of Tacoma for a gasket inspection as part of your regular maintenance routine to keep your car running and in top shape.
