October 24th, 2018 by

Recognizing the symptoms your car is giving you and having the proper service performed quickly can help prevent a small problem from becoming bigger–and more costly to repair. That’s why learning the signs your gaskets may need to be replaced is important to your engine’s health.

Gaskets form a seal between various engine components to keep fluids, gasses, and other liquids from leaking into places they aren’t meant to be. Gaskets can last a long time, but if you notice any of the following signs, you should suspect one of your gaskets may be failing and get your engine serviced right away. Common signs of an issue include

White smoke emitted from the tailpipe
Bubbling, gurgling, or foaming of the radiator
Oil in the coolant
Low cylinder pressure
Rapid pressure buildup in the cooling system
These signs need to be diagnosed and serviced right away; contact Byers Kia of Lewis Center and let our experienced and knowledgeable auto technicians get your car back into top shape.
