Your vehicle contains hundreds of gaskets that help prevent fluids and gases from escaping. They serve an important purpose and should be kept in good condition to ensure that your vehicle runs well. While gaskets are long-lasting, they will need to be replaced. If you fail to replace deteriorated gaskets, it could lead to costly repairs.

Your gaskets could be made of a broad range of materials, but the most common material that is used to make gaskets is multi-level steel. Rubber and copper are also used to make gaskets. While there are numerous types of gaskets, the most common type of gasket is a head gasket. Other gaskets include exhaust manifold gaskets, intake manifold gaskets, and bearing gaskets.

High compression levels near the radiator could cause a hole to form in the gaskets. If you notice gurgling, foaming, or bubbling near the radiator, then have it inspected. Another sign of a failing gasket is when you notice a white substance in or around the oil.
