Why Does my Subaru Need a New Head Gasket?

The head gasket sits between the engine block and the cylinder head, and ensures that engine oil stays where it needs to be and the gasoline, oxygen and spark inside the combustion chambers are uncontaminated. Once the head gasket begins to leak, oil can seep into the combustion chambers where it can burn, causing internal engine damage. Engine coolant can also leak into the engine and burn up. That's bad enough -- but these can also contribute to overheating which will damage the engine even further!

As soon as a head gasket failure is detected, you should stop driving the car and have the head gasket replaced. The longer the engine operates while burning oil and coolant, the more damage can occur from overheating. A head gasket repair is a major procedure, but it's usually cheaper than a full engine rebuild or buying a new car!

How Can I Prevent a Blown Head Gasket?

The first sign of a head gasket that's starting to leak is usually an engine that's starting to overheat or lose oil. To avoid major engine damage, keep an eye on the temperature gauge in your dashboard and make sure to check the oil level periodically using the dip stick.

And did you know that older Subaru engines prone to head gasket failure can be protected with a special Subaru engine coolant conditioner? This additive goes into the cooling system and helps your gaskets to last longer. If you've been taking your Subaru to a corner quick lube place, you probably haven't been getting this important fluid added to the engine! To make your Subaru head gasket lasts as long as possible, be sure to trust it to the pros who know Subaru engineering best. That's why it always pays to visit the Hanson Subaru service center.
