    Intake Manifold Gasket – Repairs & Replacement in Hamilton

    What is the intake manifold gasket?

    New Intake Manifold Gaskets in Hamilton

    Almost all modern car engines generate power through the combustion of an air/fuel mixture. The primary function of the intake manifold (or inlet manifold) is to evenly distribute the combustion mixture (or just air in a direct injection engine) to each engine cylinder. The intake manifold also distributes coolant into the engine, preventing it from overheating.

    The intake manifold gasket is a component usually made from rubber or plastic. It keeps the entire manifold attached to the engine, preventing leaks from occurring. In the event of the intake manifold gasket failing, your engine will struggle to work correctly. This is due to air, fuel or coolant leaking through the gaps between the gasket and engine cylinders.

    What causes the intake manifold gasket to fail?

    The intake manifold gasket is constantly subject to expansion, contraction, and extreme levels of heat. This can cause the part to fail, resulting in incorrect engine performance.

     

    Symptoms of a damaged intake manifold gasket:

    • Overheating engine – If the intake manifold gasket breaks, the coolant may leak from your vehicle. This will eventually result in the engine not being able to cool itself.

    • Engine light on – A faulty intake manifold gasket may cause an incorrect air/fuel mixture. This will usually trigger your car’s engine light.
    • Loss of engine power – If not enough fuel is entering your engine, it will not be able to produce the same amount of power. This will usually translate to slower acceleration, difficulty shifting gears and stalling.
    • Increased fuel consumption – A faulty intake manifold gasket will greatly affect your car’s fuel consumption. This can be caused by fuel leaking from your car or an incorrect air/fuel ratio.
    • Fluid underneath car – When the gasket fails, fuel or coolant may leak from underneath your engine. Coolant can easily be identified by its bright green or yellow colour.
