Head Gasket Replacement In Oakland, CA

What Is a Head Gasket?

The head gasket is designed to seal off fluids from leaking and mixing together. It is a thin component made of steel and has a bunch of holes in it. The head gasket sits between the engine block and cylinder heads to create an airtight seal. By doing this, the combustion reaction can take place safely within the cylinder and prevent different fluids, like the coolant and oil, from mixing.
