The head gasket is the seal between the engine block (the bottom of the engine) and the head (the top of the engine). It separates the combustion chambers from the cooling system and prevents coolant from entering the cylinders.
Repair of a blown head gasket is any motorist’s worst nightmare. With the cost of head gasket repairs running into thousands of pounds it’s often easier and cheaper to scrap the vehicle than it is to have it repaired. But you still end up having to buy another vehicle to keep you mobile;costly and not good for the environment.
Why Head Gaskets Fail
Head gasket failure, also known as a blown head gasket, can occur for a number of reasons including corrosion, poor maintenance, overheating of the engine. The irritating thing is that you won’t know about it until it’s too late and too expensive to fix.
