It keeps oil from escaping your motor, it is made of plastic or cork and is a seal between the cylinder head and the valve cover itself. Over time the gasket becomes brittle and it will start cracking, losing its integrity and could start leaking causing major problems it not replaced. Your gasket may last from 20,000 to 50,000 miles, depending on hard and where you drive your vehicle. From preventive maintenance to major repairs, Ricks Auto Service at 405 W.
