Great service, mostly
"All fine but kept waiting overlong because the oil filter was supplied incorrectly twice before sending the right one third time. Not the fault of Bill Lomas Garage, with whom I am very happy. But they need to have a word with their supplier of spares"
"Quick service and worth the money"
"Friendly staff. Called me when the car was ready to collect. I'd originally booked a major service not realizing I'd had one last year. They'd adjusted what I needed doing so the cost came in lower than I expected. Tightened the handbrake as I'd asked. Can't fault them."
"Good straightforward job, used them after some great service on a previous job where they were very good and kept me well informed."
A head gasket, as its name suggests, is a gasket located between the cylinder head and the engine block in the engine. Its main function is to seal the cylinders to ensure the highest compression possible, and to protect the cylinders from leakages of coolant or engine oil. The head gasket separates the oil and the coolant in the engine.
What does a head gasket do?
The head gasket is a critical sealing component of your vehicle's engine. Any potential problem with a head gasket should be dealt with immediately as it can lead to more severe issues developing, which if ignored will increase the cost of your repair. Once a head gasket is blown, it can cause further damage to your vehicle's engine such as leaks, loss of water, decreased fuel efficiency and overheating. The longer you drive with a blown head gasket, the more damage it will cause to your engine. In the worst cases scenario, if left for a long time you could be looking at a complete engine replacement.
