Kia Head Gasket Repair Service

Head Gasket Repair

Your car is chock full of mission-critical equipment, any of which will bring you to a dead stop should it stop functioning. Of all the essential engine parts we could name, the head gasket might be near the top of the list. Your vehicle's head gasket creates a secure seal between the engine block and cylinder head. Often, they will last for a long time. But overheating, bad installation, design flaws, and normal wear and tear can cause a head gasket to fail. Problems with this critical component can trigger other serious problems such as oil and coolant leaks into the engine, which can spell disaster.

Indications Your Vehicle Needs Head Gasket Repair or Replacement

While head gasket problems can leave you stranded on the side of the road quite rapidly. The good news is that there are several useful warning signs. Failure to respond to these warning signs is asking for trouble. They include:

  • Rapid Oil Consumption: Rapid oil consumption can indicate a number of problems. But if you experience this, a head gasket checkup should be one of the first things on your inspection list.
  • Rapid Coolant Consumption: Rapid coolant consumption is another possible indicator of a head gasket problem. If your head gasket is causing you to lose coolant rapidly, critical failures are not far off.
  • Oil & Coolant Mixing: Oil and coolant will rarely mix anywhere other than via a leak in your head gasket. If you find oil mixed with coolant on the ground, around the engine area, or anywhere else, you should have your head gasket inspected immediately.

Do I Need Head Gasket Replacement?

Any of the problems mentioned above can indicate a need to have your head gasket replaced. Frequently, it can indicate a problem that can be repaired without replacing the head gasket. If you ignore such a problem, you are certain to damage the head gasket and possibly your engine as well. The best way to avoid expensive repairs is to have your vehicle inspected and maintained properly on a regular schedule.
