If you don’t know anything at all about your vehicle, you will be at a total loss if your car breaks down along the highway. Many of the problems that cause this to happen are preventable. Regular maintenance can identify potential problems and prevent unnecessary wear and tear on the engine. A blown head gasket often occurs when a car is not properly maintained.
In order for a head gasket to be replaced, the entire upper portion of the engine must be taken off so that the old head gasket can be removed and thoroughly cleaned. Once the area has been cleaned and is free of any debris, the new head gasket can be put in place. The upper portion of the engine is replaced and the gasket is allowed to cure in place.
One of the most common causes of a blown head gasket is the continuous overheating of the engine. This is usually the result of poor engine maintenance. Not changing your engine’s oil at the recommended intervals can lead to excessive wear and tear causing it to overheat or just not run efficiently. The longer the engine runs like this, the more extensive the damage to its parts.
A common sign that you have a problem with your head gasket is an unusual smell, like burning oil. This can come from a leak that allows oil from the engine to drop onto the hot parts of the engine. As it burns away, you may be able to smell it inside the vehicle. Another sign of a damaged head gasket is that your engine regular starts to overheat. When this happens, your check engine light may come on. If your warning light does come on, don’t ignore it!
