While there are many important parts to your vehicle, you might not always think of gaskets. While these tiny parts are mostly out of your view, their importance cannot be overstated enough. You will find that they perform critical functions that your car could not live without.

Just take a look at the oil pan underneath your car to understand how gaskets play a role in your vehicle's performance. Oil is what lubricates all of those important parts to your engine. The oil pan catches the oil and the gaskets seal everything in place. This keeps everything working properly, even given the extreme temperatures in your engine.

Your car also has head and valve covers that can be removed. When they are put in place, gaskets become necessary in order to seal them as they should be. You will find gaskets everywhere that a valve cover actually comes into contact with a cylinder head.
