Engine Repair


Head gaskets typically fail at the weakest point, which is the thinnest area between adjacent cylinders. The gasket cracks or burns through, allowing compression to leak between the cylinders. This causes a drastic drop in power that is hard to ignore. The engine may still run, but very poorly.

If the gasket leaks coolant, it may cause the engine to overheat. Coolant in the crankcase or cylinder is also not a good thing to have because it dilutes the oil and accelerates wear. If enough coolant leaks into a cylinder, it may even "hydrolock" the engine preventing it from turning over when you attempt to start it.

Conditions such as engine overheating and abnormal combustion (detonation and/or preignition) can also cause a head gasket to fail.
