What are Gaskets?

As an informed car owner, we here at Courvelle Toyota feel you need to know the basics about your car's gaskets. Gaskets are a way to create a seal at the point where two materials in your car meet. If they fail, you can see leaking fluids and a great deal of damage can be done to your car.

One of the most common reasons that gaskets go bad are because your engine has overheated. Even though gaskets are designed to withstand very high temperatures from your engine, you must still note that they have upper limits of heat and will begin to wear over time like any other part of your car. The best way to avoid this is to always make sure that your coolant levels are filled to their recommended levels and to have your vehicle serviced regularly.
