Gaskets: A Crucial but Often Overlooked Part of Your Engine

At Grand Prix Motors Inc., we want you to be as informed as possible about your vehicle. Inside your engine, gaskets are parts that most people don’t think about, but they play a crucial role in your engine running smoothly.

Gaskets sit between two surfaces in your engine, creating a seal or barrier to keep liquids and gases from escaping. They are designed to fit perfectly inside of each unique engine. Most commonly, they are made of stainless steel, copper, or rubber.

There are many important gaskets in your vehicle, like the head gasket, the camshaft gasket, and the main bearing gasket. If a gasket has failed, you might notice bubbles or gurgling in the radiator, high pressure in the cooling system, or smoke in the exhaust. Schedule an appointment and let the team in our showroom inspect your engine to make sure your gaskets are in good working order.
