VW Cylinder Head Gaskets

The VW cylinder head gasket sits between the cylinder head and the engine block. The engine of a car is divided into two sections: the cylinder head, which contains the valves and other components, and the engine block, which houses the pistons and cylinders. Head gaskets typically last 200,000 miles, which is roughly the lifespan of most automobiles. The head gasket, which is sandwiched between these two engine components, serves to seal the internal combustion system and prevent any fluids from leaking or mixing during combustion.

The head gasket is essential in keeping the engine's combustion chamber sealed so that your car can retain the necessary compression to maintain engine power. Additionally, it stops coolant or oil from leaking somewhere else, guarding against engine overheating. You might one day discover a leaky or cracking head gasket, which results in a "blown head gasket," since it serves as a tight seal between the engine block and cylinder head and can endure the whole range of pressure and heat. It can be challenging to recognize the signs of a blown head gasket at first because they are frequently less evident. These are the most typical indications that your head gasket has been damaged:

  • White smoke
  • Overheating
  • Discolored oil
