Gear Gaskets

A knowledgeable car owner will usually get more usable life out of their car than one who is not. That is why we here at BMW of Ridgefield are here to give you the basics on your car’s unsung hero, the gaskets.

Gaskets are placed to make the space between two different materials in your engine completely flush and airtight. This is designed to keep all engine fluid in and other fluids, like rain, out. While gaskets can easily last upwards of 200,000 miles, this number can be far lower if the engine frequently overheats throughout their lifetime. This can occur if your vehicle’s coolant levels or oil levels are not always properly filled.

​If you are looking for a service team with combined decades of experience to do any sort of work on your car, then be sure to ring us up or simply stop on by BMW of Ridgefield to schedule a service appointment today!
