What is a Gasket?

When you hear that "a gasket" has blown on your vehicle, it's easy to become overwhelmed very quickly. After all, there are a wide variety of gaskets on any type of car or truck, and if you're not a car person, it's tough to determine which part is attached to which piece of the car.

One small piece of rubber breaking can cause your car to not run temporarily, or even worse, cause serious damage if you continue to attempt to operate the vehicle. Put simply, gaskets are pieces of rubber that are used to form seals between pieces made from other materials, and they are used throughout mechanical connections. One breaking or being damaged is serious business.
