Gaskets for auto

Engine auto parts: Gaskets

There exist various gaskets of different materials. They serve for different purposes. Due to them it is possible to connect gas, electricity or heating. Industrial enterprises can not use compressed air, which is required today for the production of various machines. Each vehicle has gaskets of various shapes and purposes. None of the engines can work effectively for a long time without cylinder head gasket, for example. Extensive environmental contamination is a consequence of the fact that the brake fluid system is improperly sealed.

There is no driver who would like to drive a car with unsealed windows and doors. As consequence the heating system will malfunction. So, it is obvious that gaskets should be in a perfect condition. Gaskets must be regularly checked and tested for their performance.

How to detect the thermostat gasket failure

You have to visually inspect the thermostat gasket in order to check it for integrity. If the sealing ring is torn or burnt out, it needs replacement. Also check for traces of antifreeze near the thermostat. Their presence may indicate the gasket wear. If you detected a fault, it is recommended to inspect other adjacent consumables, such as injector gaskets, as they also tend to eventually wear out.

You may identify that the thermostat gasket has to be checked by the following symptoms:

  • leakage of coolant in the thermostat area;
  • increased coolant consumption.

On used vehicles, many standard gaskets, in particular a kit of gearbox gaskets, need preventive inspection.

Causes of the thermostat gasket failure

The unsatisfactory state of the part can be caused by delayed coolant replacement or usage of a low-quality fluid. The unsuitable antifreeze corrodes the rubber seal, therefore the part loses its operational properties.

Ingress of oil into the cooling system also has a disruptive impact on the rubber. The oil can mix with antifreeze for various reasons, in particular, if the oil cooler has failed. The cylinder head faults, the water pump breakage or a crack in the expansion tank may also lead to ingress of oil to antifreeze. If this problem takes place, it is worth performing a thorough system diagnosis and to check if the oil is leaking in other areas, for instance, through the oil filter housing gasket, oil pan gasket or differential gasket.

Besides, the thermostat gasket may fail because of natural wear and tear. The component service life is short, its replacement is advised to be made after each thermostat removal.

Replacement of the thermostat gasket

Since the gasket is a consumable, it is not repairable. The replacement procedure is quite easy. It involves the following steps:

  1. First of all, you need to mount the vehicle on a pit or a ramp.
  2. Remove the engine undercover from the bottom of the car.
  3. Drain the antifreeze through the radiator drain hole or by removing the lower connecting pipe from the thermostat housing.
  4. Open the hood and, using a screwdriver, unscrew the screws of the clamps on the two large connecting pipes of the thermostat and remove them.
  5. Unscrew the thermostat mounting bolts and dismantle it.
  6. Take out the old gasket and install a new one in its place. For greater effectiveness, you can grease it with a special sealant, then reinstall the thermostat, tighten the bolts and refit the pipes.
  7. Fill coolant. If you have used a sealant, carefully study its instructions and act in compliance with it.
  8. Warm up the engine, check tightness of all connections.
  9. Reinstall the engine undercover.
