An automotive gasket is a part that you don’t see, but one that serves an important purpose for your car or truck. Bay Hyundai thinks you should know more about these important vehicle parts. Here is some useful information for drivers in Panama City, FL.

Vehicles often have 100 or more individual gaskets attached to different systems. These thin pieces of material are used to create tight seals that prevent the loss of fluid or lubricant. Gaskets are placed in between stationary parts and movable components. You probably won’t realize a gasket is worn because they are not visible to the eye during an inspection.

Reduced performance and leaks can be signs that a gasket needs to be replaced. Be sure to have your car checked by a professional if you suspect a gasket is bad. Delayed replacement may lead to critical and expensive repair issues, especially when the gasket is connected to engine components.
