Signs You Need a New Gasket

If you are not sure whether your recent vehicular troubles are due to a gasket problem, we can help. The following are some tell-tale signs that you need gasket replacement:

 Loss of Power: Gaskets help maintain compression in the engine to ensure fuel and air combust efficiently. If there is a loss of compression due to a leaking gasket, it will eventually result in a loss of power and later overheating.

 Internal Fluid Loss: Have you spotted traces of coolant in your motor oil? Does condensation drip from your exhaust pipe while the engine is hot and running? The cause may be a failing gasket.

 External Fluid Loss: When you find puddles of fluid under your vehicle, you should check if you need gasket replacement and new oil replacement as soon as possible. Too often, drivers don’t address this problem until serious damage is done.

 Unusual Sounds: If something is wrong with your differential gasket, you may notice a howling or whining sound. The lack of lubrication causes this noise, which leads to increased wear and tear.
