Blown Head Gasket? You Can Still Sell Your Car For A Fair Price
By Birmingham Auto Break on 14 January 2022
The head gasket on your vehicle’s engine is crucial. Without it, your car is going nowhere. The head gasket connects two main parts of an engine: the head and the block. The reaction between your fuel and oxygen is what enables your car to accelerate, otherwise known as combustion. The head gasket seals the combustion sections and is where coolant passes to prevent overheating. Without it an engine can’t run properly. The job of the head gasket is an arduous one, which is why older vehicles will find their head gasket blowing after a lot of miles.
The issue with a blown head gasket is that the engine is not adequately sealed. Issues with compression, acceleration and overheating are all side effects of a blown head gasket. As your engine leaks coolant, it will be unable to regulate its temperature and your vehicle will frequently overheat. If a head gasket is not repaired as soon as any issues arise the damage becomes catastrophic and expensive.
Like most things, a head gasket can be repaired, however, as you can imagine for such a huge engine component it comes with a hefty price tag. If you want to keep your car running after a head gasket is blown it is worth considering how extensive the damage is, the cost of repairs and ultimately the value of the vehicle. Repairs can run into the thousands. Many will find that a blown head gasket renders their vehicle beyond economical repair and worthless. This is not the case.
You can be forgiven for assuming that a blown head gasket means your car is not worth anything since it cannot be driven. In a private sale you are probably right, who would want a vehicle that required that level of repair? The good news is that we would.
