Have you noticed that your car is overheating? Is there white smoke coming out of your exhaust? You could have an issue with the head gasket on your engine. The gasket seals in the engine block's combustion chamber, allowing air to be compressed. When there is too much air being compressed, it could force a new hole or crack in the gasket. This can lead to a blown gasket, which causes problems for your engine to run properly.

The head gasket is a piece of metal with holes bored into it so that pistons from your engine can move through. When a gasket becomes faulty, it typically has a hole formed by compressed air being forced against it over a long period of time. There are also some models of vehicles that are known to have gasket issues.
