Most vehicle owners believe that if the head gasket goes on their car then it must be a write-off, believing a head gasket is too expensive to replace. But this is not always the case. It’s not an inexpensive job to do but often it’s more affordable than a new car and all that that entails.
The most important thing is to make sure the job is done by a garage which is properly qualified and trained to carry out the work. All the technicians at Dukes AutoTech are and will quickly and expertly replace a head gasket if required.
Firstly we always thoroughly examine the vehicle to make sure that a new head gasket is what is needed. We then remove the cylinder head and send it off for testing to ensure there are no cracks or distortion, to ensure that when it goes back on the engine block there is a perfect seal. This takes a couple of days so most head gasket replacements will take us 3-4 days to complete.
So if you think you need a new head gasket, don’t panic. Call the experts at Dukes AutoTech on 01726 337171 and we’ll have you back on the road in no time.
