The infamous blown head gasket is one of the most feared vehicle problems because of the importance of the part but also the labor required to correct the problem. While some people mistakenly believe a blown head gasket equals a blown engine, this is far from the truth. The Head Gasket is positioned between the engine block and cylinder head to create a tight seal whereby the components of your internal combustion engine can do their job. In essence, your Head Gasket is what allows your vital engine components to perform as if they are inside a single solid piece of sealed metal. However, head gaskets are not metal and face intense heat and pressure fluctuations that can cause them to wear out over time. A head gasket with a small crack will likely cause some warning signs but a blown head gasket with a large opening can be a serious problem with the potential for engine damages.
