Your engine performance depends upon the engine block and cylinders maintaining a tight seal, allowing for efficient combustion and clean firing of the spark plugs. Properly sealed head gaskets help ensure a solid seal is maintained. Head gasket malfunctions are rare but serious, and when a bad seal rears its ugly head, it can cause a host of issues. When this happens to your Mitsubishi vehicle, you must turn to the trusted professionals at Vern Eide Mitsubishi in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, who have worked on countless vehicles like yours before!
Where your head gasket breaks its seal can affect what symptoms you observe. For instance, if your head gasket between the cylinder block and water jacket, this can leak coolant into the engine and come out of your exhaust system in the form of steam. If you observe white gas coming from your exhaust this could be steam resulting from a leaking head gasket. Additionally, if your head gasket forms a leak and allows coolant to enter the oil line in your engine, this can result in a brown sludge in your Mitsubishi's oil. This can be observed when checking your oil using the dipstick.
A failed head gasket can also cause your coolant levels to drop, resulting in your engine overheating. Lastly, leaking coolant can foul up your spark plugs, resulting in poor ignition and diminished engine performance. All of these symptoms can lead to damage or engine failure if left untreated, so don’t wait, contact Vern Eide Mitsubishi today and set up an appointment to have your head gaskets examined.
