Most of us have been in a situation where we know there’s a problem with our vehicle but we just don’t have the time – or money – to get it fixed today. Or at least that’s what we tell ourselves.

However, if the problem is a leaking head gasket, time is of the essence. The longer you drive with a failing head gasket, the higher the risk of causing severe damage to the engine. And that’s when things really get expensive.

In previous videos, we’ve talked about some of the signs of a failing head gasket. They could include low coolant level or coolant puddles underneath the vehicle; white and cloudy exhaust smoke; or a loss of power caused by cylinder misfires. Regardless of the symptoms, if the customer suspects the problem is a failing head gasket, it requires immediate attention.

Here’s the good news: If a customer catches a head-gasket leak in its early stages, they might be able to do something about it before the problem gets worse, by using a high-quality gasket-repair product. The manufacturers of these products say that a single application might be enough to stop a head-gasket leak for good. If it works, you could save your customer the expense of a hefty repair bill.
