Regular Maintenance to Avoid Costly Repairs on Your Vehicle

You've maybe heard of a gasket, but did you know that your vehicle has many gaskets all over the car? Gaskets are parts of a vehicle that are usually made of steel, copper, or rubber, and they form a bond between various parts of a vehicle, keeping gases and liquids separate from each other. When a gasket wears out, a multitude of problems can occur depending on which gasket is worn out.

When a gasket wears out, one possible result is that motor oil can be mixed with antifreeze, resulting in damage to the catalytic converter. One way that you can prolong the life of your gaskets is by changing certain fluids such as coolant and oil on a regular basis.

If you'd like to learn more about how you can prolong the life of your gaskets, or if you think that you might have a problem with one of your gaskets, come to our service center at Annapolis Hyundai. We'd be glad to take a look at your vehicle and make suggestions.
