What is a Head Gasket?

A head gasket is an important engine component that stops oil and coolant from entering your vehicle’s combustion chambers. It achieves this by forming a seal between your engine block and the cylinder head. Sometimes a head gasket can leak, causing serious problems for vehicles. This can be caused by an overheating engine or improper gasket installation.

Blown head gaskets can cause serious damage to your vehicle and cost a lot to fix. Therefore it is best to get your vehicle serviced and fixed immediately if you suspect there is an issue.

What are the Symptoms of a Blown Head Gasket?

Here are some of the most common symptoms of a blown head gasket:

  • Overheating: A blown head gasket can cause engine coolant to leak out, which can lead to overheating. If your car is overheating frequently or the temperature gauge is reading high, it could be a sign of a blown head gasket.
  • White smoke coming from the exhaust: When coolant leaks into the combustion chamber, it can cause white smoke to come out of the exhaust pipe. This is a clear sign of a blown head gasket and should be addressed as soon as possible.
  • Loss of engine power: A blown head gasket can cause a loss of power and acceleration, as the engine is no longer operating at peak performance.
  • Milky oil: If there is coolant leaking into the engine, it can mix with the engine oil and create a milky or frothy substance. This is a clear sign of a blown head gasket and should be addressed immediately to avoid further engine damage.
  • Poor engine performance: A blown head gasket can cause the engine to run poorly, with rough idling or hesitation during acceleration.
  • Coolant leaks: A blown head gasket can cause engine coolant to leak out and create puddles under the car. If you notice coolant leaking from your car, it’s important to have it inspected by a mechanic.

Booked the ol' Fuga in for a service this week. I dropped it off early to take advantage of the free clean and asked if I could have it ready at 3 pm. The service went well and they... pointed out things that would need attention in the future. I like the introduction of the vehicle service and repair log book. Which has all my previous services and fix ups recorded in it. And the Fuga was freshly cleaned and ready at 3pm, like they said. Thanks Team
