Gaskets - What Do They Do?

Gaskets are a small and relatively inexpensive automotive part, yet one that is very important. Do not underestimate the importance of gaskets or of how many there are working inside and underneath your car. Stop at Mercedes-Benz of Walnut Creek if you have any questions or think you may be in need of new gaskets.

Gaskets can be made of rubber, copper or plastic, but they’re most commonly made of durable steel. They need to be durable because their job is to hold things together. Gaskets must also be able to survive through inclement weather and contact with strong chemicals. Despite their durability, they may still wear out or break over time. It’s important to have gaskets checked periodically, so they can be replaced before they break and cause big problems.

Call for an appointment or stop and see us if you have any automotive concerns, whether it’s gasket related or for something else.
