We at Audi Memphis want you to be an informed vehicle owner and to understand your vehicle operation. One central component of your vehicle's performance is the gasket, and this object can protect you and your vehicle from dangerous fluid leaks.

The gasket is a bond between multiple surfaces so that fluids, such as liquids and gases, cannot escape a container. Gaskets are designed to seal chemicals, tolerate extreme temperatures and to conform to any imperfections in the sealing surfaces. They are primarily made of multi-layered steel, copper and rubber since those materials are flexible and adaptable.

Engine overheating and intense compression can create a hole in a gasket, thus causing gasket failure. This can cause dangerous chemicals to leak and mix with each other. Gasket failures can be prevented by frequently changing your coolant and oil and inspecting your gasket. Come visit us in Memphis to get your vehicle serviced.
