Head Gasket Malfunction

The head gasket is an important engine component that seals the engine cylinders and prevents oil and coolant from leaking, aiding in compression. A malfunction in the gasket can be a result of timing, cooling, or other manufacturing problems. A blown gasket can cause coolant to leak and engines to overheat. This problem is serious and costly. Repair is extensive and though the gasket itself is not an extremely expensive part, labor costs run high. The head gasket repair costs can run between $1,200 and $1,600, depending on the extent of damage and the particular shop.

Proper maintenance of your vehicle through regular services and only using quality gas and oil will help you avoid these costly repairs, which will keep your vehicle running longer. Other ways to keep repair costs low are:

  • Driving slower – this will reduce the strain on your engine, plus will ensure you don’t get speeding tickets!
  • Driving less – we know this one is often difficult, but if you can combine trips and avoid needless drives, you will make great strides toward protecting that engine!
  • Getting your car checked regularly – this includes changing the oil, filters, general engine maintenance, and tires.
  • Learning about your car – do a little research and read up on the general performance of your car. You should be aware of how long your particular car will typically last, what kind of mileage it gets, and special ticks and quirks. This can really help in preventing wear and tear.
  • Having a specialist look before you buy – this one is huge. We can’t tell you how many times a customer has come in and complained that they didn’t know about a needed repair before they bought the vehicle. Before you sign that paperwork, take your potential car to a mechanic and get it checked out. It’s not terribly expensive for a general checkup, and it will save you a lot of heartache!

We all know how painful car repairs can be. No one wants to have to pay thousands of dollars just to get their car working again. So keep it updated, and take care of your vehicle! For cosmetic damages which really cannot be avoided, lucky for you, Unique Auto Body is one of the highest rated auto repair shops in Utah, and we offer free consultations. Give us a call at 801-512-0661 any time with questions, and we’ll be happy to get you back on the road in no time!
