What Do Gaskets Do?

Under the hood of every car is a complicated grouping of many different materials, parts, and fluids all of which must work together in harmony to help your car run. But just what keeps all of these parts together and keeps the fluids from leaking out? Luckily, our team at Alfa Romeo of Oakville is here to tell you all about how gaskets save the day.

When two different surfaces are placed together, there is always somewhat of a space between them. This space, however small, can lead to leaks of liquids or gasses if not properly sealed. Gaskets are used to create this air tight seal and ensure that no fluid leaks in your vehicle. Gaskets can be as simple as connecting two flat faces or more complicated by connecting multiple surface to one another.
