Nissan Head Gasket Service 

Head Gasket Service in Philadelphia


Your car's engine undergoes a lot of heat and pressure daily. The piston heads are pressurized and put a lot of stress on your head gasket. If your car overheats, it puts too much pressure on this gasket, and it will blow. A blown head gasket that is neglected will lead to severe motor problems. If not taken care of quickly, your car could break down completely. At Chapman Nissan, we have certified technicians who are trained to replace a head gasket. Replacing a head gasket is a complicated procedure and should only be done by a professional.   


Blown Head Gasket

There are multiple signs of a blown head gasket. One of the most accessible signs to notice is a white smoke that comes from the tailpipe. This white smoke can be caused by coolant leaking into the pistons through the blown gasket. The head gasket acts as a barrier to the coolant outside of the pistons and the oil inside. When the head gasket blows, the coolant and oil tend to mix. If your engine coolant becomes goopy and frothy, or if your engine oil looks like a creamy latte when drained, the chances are that your head gasket has blown, and the two fluids are mixing.  

Head Gasket Repair Process

One of the factors that make a head gasket repair complicated is accessing the piston heads. Generally, the process of accessing the head gasket requires the draining of engine oil and coolant, disconnecting the battery, and tearing into the engine removing all parts and pieces attached to the cylinder heads. This disassembly of some critical features of the vehicle must be done with care and precision. Many times, those who attempt this process by themselves end up doing more harm to the car. For this reason, it is vital to have a trained professional like those at Chapman Nissan take on this repair.

Do Not Procrastinate

It is never fun to take your car to the mechanic. Yet, with head gasket repairs, this service should not be neglected. The longer you wait, the more damage will be done to your car. Failing head gasket repairs can lead to further damage or cracks to the engine block, damage to the coolant system, and can ruin spark plugs causing your engine to run rough. Coolant in the engine chamber can cause the pistons to rust and not function properly. In essence, driving your car with a cracked or blown head gasket will only lead to more damage and more expensive repairs in the future. Come to Chapman Nissan today, our service center has the experienced professionals to replace your head gasket before any more damage is done to your car.
