The head gasket is the component of your vehicle's engine that seals combustion chambers and coolant passages. Often times, the head gasket can fail and need replacement if there are other engine problems present. A bad head gasket is never good news, because it can cause coolant to leak into other portions of the engine which can lead to severe damage and issues. 

A main symptoms of a head gasket failure is an overheating engine or a significant loss in power. Here are some of the reasons why the head gasket can fail: 

  • Overheating

  • Coolant leak
