Gaskets form seals to keep fluids and gases in the proper place. Almost every system in your vehicle involves one or more gaskets or seals. They are made of a variety of materials, but most of them break down over time. When this happens, it can cause problems such as brake failure, power steering failure, water pump failure or cause the engine to overheat.

Gaskets do many vital roles, but many people do not think about them until one of them fails. That is why it is a good idea to have your car’s gaskets and seals checked as a regular part of vehicle maintenance. They are typically easy to replace, and this is one step to help make sure that your car has a long life.

If you can’t remember how long it has been since you have had your gaskets inspected it is time to make an appointment with Braddock Motors to have one of their service technicians take a look.
