Part of our Better Mechanical Service
Your “Check Engine” light can go on for a number of reasons, and problems with your head gaskets may be one of them. To find out if you need head gasket replacement or other engine repair, bring your car to Quanz Auto Care for advanced diagnostics and quality mechanical service.
What Are Head Gaskets?
Car enthusiasts may already know a little about how a car’s engine functions, but many drivers just know that it makes the car go. Well, in order to go, your engine needs to burn fuel to generate power—that creates a lot of heat. To regulate temperatures, the radiator cycles coolant through the engine. Head gaskets create a seal between the cylinder head and engine block to keep all the fluids—fuel and coolant—from mixing. Without a proper seal, your engine will not operate efficiently and may overheat.
Symptoms of Head Gasket Issues
Some early warning signs of head gasket wear, like decreased fuel efficiency or increased engine temperatures, may be easy to overlook, especially because they could be explained by other issues.
Frequent or consistent overheating or complete engine failure, though, are not symptoms that can be ignored. If your car will not start or engine temps quickly get in the red, we recommend towing service to get your car to us.
Advanced Diagnostics, Honest Estimates
Quanz Auto Care invests in the latest technology for automotive diagnostics. We will determine if the head gaskets are really the problem, or if other engine repairs are needed. Once we identify the cause, we will prepare a free estimate.
When it comes to head gasket replacement, many people experience “sticker shock” at the estimate. Replacing head gaskets requires disassembling and reassembling the engine—that takes a lot of labor. We strive to help make repairs as affordable as possible, and you can rest assured knowing all our engine repairs are backed by our extensive 12-month/12,000-mile warranty.
