What are Gaskets?

Knowing how a vehicle works is a great way to keep it in top condition since you’ll be more likely to spot an approaching problem and get it dealt with quickly before it becomes more serious. Unfortunately, most car owners know very little about how one of their most valuable possessions function. We here at Arceneaux Ford want to help you break the mold of the fumbling car owner that doesn’t understand cars.

Every vehicle on the road has several different liquids and gases moving around the various parts at any given time. In order to avoid any potential mixing, which could have dangerous consequences, your vehicle uses a collection of gaskets to create seals between the different components, making sure that no gas or liquid is able to escape from its designated areas. They must be engineered to exacting specifications in order to provide an absolutely perfect seal.

If you notice any signs that any of the gaskets in your vehicle may be getting close to failing, such as the engine overheating or white smoke coming out of the tailpipe, come on down to our service center and our professional technicians will be glad to take a look under the hood and make sure everything is put back together so you can get back on the road.
