Q: Q: Blown head gasket

asked by on

My car blew the head gasket.

A blown head gasket is in most cases the final leg for an engine. This causes damage and allows fluids to mix which means other systems may have to be flushed as well. Many head gasket repair costs come close to the cost of replacing the engine and both options may be considered. The cooling system will have to be flushed in order to complete the service.
