How to replace a cylinder head gasket?

Manufacturers don’t specify service life of the cylinder head gasket. A component made of aluminum alloys is more vulnerable to thermal damages. A cast-iron component burns out rarely but it is prone to cracking in a greater degree. The gasket is not subject to repair, so it is replaced in case of any damages. Moreover, a new component is mounted every time during engine repair on a car.

Replacement of the cylinder head gasket for a car is performed at a service station only.To diagnose the component correctlyspecialists will measure engine compression, and drain cooling liquid from the system before mounting. For proper installation of a new sealing element its mounting seat needs to be thoroughly cleaned as well as threaded holes in the cylinder block. Fixation bolts for the cylinder head are replaced together with the gasket kit. These fasteners tend to stretch, so they can not be reused. New fastening bolts are mounted observing the tightening torque value which is specified in the vehicle operation manual.
