Ford Head Gasket Repair in Egg Harbor Township, NJ

Why is the purpose of the head gasket?

The head gasket is the mechanical seal for the internal combustion process. It also serves as a seal to prevent motor oil and coolant from mixing. The head gasket is located between the cylinder head and the engine block. Without the head gasket, the engine will have leaks and make it a very inefficient system.

What causes a blown head gasket?

A blown head gasket can be caused by a manufacturing defect or an overheating engine. If the coolant levels have not been properly maintained, the head gasket can expand due to heat and lose its seal. The most typical sign of a blown head gasket is a misfiring engine which results from the combustion process not being able to run through completely. If the engine starts to steam or engine warning light turns on, it can that the head gasket leaks.
