Head Gasket Replacement:
First we need to diagnose the problem. Our technicians are highly skilled at diagnosing and repair head gasket problems. Before we embark on head gasket replacement, we will make sure that it truly is necessary.
Second step is the removal of the engine from the vehicle. Afterwards our technicians disassemble the engine and inspect if for damage. Depending on the damage, additional repairs may be needed, not just head gasket replacement.
Next step is cleaning of metal surfaces, and preparing them so the new head gasket can be installed, and the heads resealed. If there are other damaged or worn out parts, at this step they would get replaced as well. BTW: if your vehicle is due for timing belt replacement, drive belt or clutch replacement, it can be done at the same time with minimal labor cost, so be sure to let us know.
Next step is engine reassembly and testing. We put the engine back together, reconnect the power train, turn it on, and make sure that everything is working as expected. The final check is a road test – we take your vehicle for a test drive to make sure that everything works right under real world driving conditions.
