Gaskets are one of the most important components of any automobile. Boch Maserati likes to help drivers in Norwood stay informed. Here's a closer look at automotive gaskets and their purpose.

Cars today can have more than 100 gaskets. These parts are generally made of stainless steel or rubber, and they are positioned between moving and stationary components. The purpose of the gasket is to prevent leaks by creating a tight seal. The gasket also keeps impurities and foreign matter from entering various vehicle systems.

Some of the mechanical systems on a car that include a gasket are the engine, fuel pump, and cooling system. A worn gasket fails to create a seal, and this can lead to serious damage for parts of your vehicle. If you have noticed a leak or experienced performance issues with your car, you should have it checked by a service professional at the first opportunity.
