The cylinder head, often referred to simply as the head, sits above the cylinders on top of the engine block. It closes the top of the cylinder which creates the combustion chamber. The gap between the head and the block is sealed by the head gasket. The head usually contains the passages that supply fuel and air to the cylinder and remove the exhaust.
Why do Heads Fail?
The most common reason for cylinder head failure is overheating caused by for example coolant loss, head gasket failure or restricted flow of coolant. In extreme cases a cracked or damaged cylinder head can result in terminal damage to the entire engine! You must deal with any problems as soon as possible to try and prevent this from happening.
