Your car has many fluids and gases throughout its systems. Gaskets form a tight seal where two pieces come together. This prevents your fluids from leaking out. If your gaskets are bad, fluids like oil, brake fluid and coolant can leak out and cause problems.

Gaskets wear out and it is a good idea to have them inspected on a regular basis. Some signs that you might have a bad gasket are:
  • White smoke coming from the exhaust
  • Puddles of fluid when the car is parked
  • Engine overheating
  • Burning smells when the car is driven
Leaking gaskets can eventually lead to engine damage and more costly repairs. Additives to seal a leak only work for a short time. The only way to fix a blown gasket is to have it replaced by a professional.
