Maintaining Your Vehicle: What Are Gaskets?

At MINI of Ramsey, we want you to know as much as possible about how your vehicle works.

What is a gasket? It's a flat seal, usually made from a multi-layered metal or rubber that forms an impenetrable bond between two surfaces. Gaskets are found everywhere in your automobile, holding in all types of fluids from oil, coolant, to power steering fluid and window washer fluid.

Because gaskets deteriorate over time, this can lead to fluids or air escaping from your engine, which can lead to expensive repairs and can also be dangerous if it occurs while you are driving.

A good way to help keep your gaskets in good condition is to maintain your vehicle on time, and keep the fluid levels in the right spot.

For any and all of your vehicle's service needs, bring it to our service center in Ramsey, NJ where we'll be happy to give you a hand!
