If you’ve always wondered what gaskets are, you aren’t alone. At Robert Basil Buick GMC, we want our drivers to be as informed as possible about what’s under the hood of the vehicle they drive. A gasket is made from different materials, and it makes sure that surfaces bond properly to each other.

A gasket is used for different parts that make up your vehicle. Gaskets are usually vehicle specific, so they fit perfectly. A seal is needed for the parts that use fluids, so your vehicle doesn’t leak. Gaskets are a great way to make sure that imperfections are covered and can withstand extreme heat.

Gaskets are usually flat, and materials such as steel or copper are used to make them. The material is determined by the part it fits on and the make and model of your vehicle. If you think you may have a gasket failure, or you have a leak under your hood, bring your vehicle to our dealership in Orchard Park, NY to have it serviced.
