Understand Your Car's Gaskets

While you have probably heard of automotive gaskets, you might be uncertain about what they are and what they do. We can gladly help.

Every auto features gaskets. These parts are vital to a car's proper operation. Under the hood, gaskets separate metal surfaces and keep gasses and liquids from mixing and causing costly problems. Manufacturers use rubber, layered metal or a combination of both to create automotive gaskets. These materials form lasting seals. Still, time, heat and pressure deteriorate automotive gaskets, so you need to prolong their lives when possible. Meeting manufacturers' service guidelines helps. To check your gaskets' integrity, look for bubbles or foam around your radiator, and check your oil for a substance that resembles mayonnaise.

We will happily answer any car-service question in our service center at Rick Hendrick BMW Charleston. At our convenient Charleston, SC, location, you can rely on our certified team to provide top-notch repairs and maintenance.
