Are Your Gaskets in Good Working Order?

March 5th, 2018 by

Did you know that there are hundreds of gaskets at work at any given time, helping the fluids and gases properly circulate throughout the vehicle? These tiny little pieces of multi-layered steel, rubber or copper provide a perfect seal, so liquids and gases don’t mix together or escape.

Our service technicians at Bill George’s Olathe Kia will always alert you if they notice that a gasket has become worn and ready to “blow”. Using the proper coolant as recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer, and maintaining a regular schedule of oil and other fluid changes go a long way in helping extend the lifespan of your gaskets, helping them do their proper job of serving as sealants. Replacing worn gaskets as soon as necessary can also help you avoid further damage down the road to major parts and components that could prove to not only waste your time but also your money.
