When should you replace your Gaskets and Seals?
Gaskets and Seals are a part of a vehicle’s Exhaust, Turbocharger, Fluid Supply, Engine, and Combustion functions. The primary purpose of a seal and a gasket is to ensure that chambers and supply lines within the engine, propulsion and exhaust functions are sealed, airtight, do not leak, or prevent contaminants entering the internal processes of the vehicle.
Heavy-duty and commercial vehicles undergo a monumental amount of wear and tear with seals and gaskets getting the brunt of the attrition. Faulty gaskets and seals can cause significant damage, so replacing them early is key.
The most obvious signs that they might be defective include:
Emission of a blue smoke is an indicator that Engine Valve Seals and Engine Gaskets are faulty
Acceleration is compromised is an indicator that Turbocharger Gaskets are perishing
Fluid on the ground underneath the vehicle after sitting stationary overnight is a strong indicator that Oil seals, O-rings or Exhaust Gaskets are defective
