I need head gasket repair


Ladies - look no further - this is the guy you want on speed dial for when vehicle issues need resolving! Gents - you want to a mechanic that has those old school mechanical skills that only comes from pulling apart car engines and putting them back together, well this guy enhances those old school mechanical skills with use of the latest scanning and diagnostic tools! And if that isn’t enough for you - he’s past experience includes several years at Hyundai! Cannot praise Mat enough for his level of service and ability to persevere with complex vehicle faults that don’t present themselves immediately and unlike other “mechanics”, Mat doesn’t show up to collect his assessment fee, he shows up, makes the vehicle his bitch and pulls it apart until he’s found the root cause! Expect nothing but honest and detailed assessment of his findings including estimate of cost to resolve! Thank you Mat!

Top Head Gasket Repair related questions

White smoke coming out of your exhaust pipes, engine overheating, engine stalling, and coolant leaks are some of the most noticeable signs of a broken head gasket. If you’re starting to notice any of these, it’s best to get your gasket checked by an expert right away.
A blown head gasket is usually caused by extremely high temperatures. Lack of coolant in the radiator or coolant leaks can lead to engine overheating. When your head gasket is exposed to a heat it can't handle, it will melt and cause malfunction.
A blown head gasket is one of the most significant damages your car can suffer from, so fixing it can take a tremendous amount of time as well. Repairs usually take six hours to a few days, depending on the severity of the damage.
If it’s just a minor issue, your head gasket can still be repaired. However, if the damage is severe and using a sealant and fixing the bolt doesn’t work, then you should have it replaced.

What do head gasket repair services include?

The head gasket is one of the parts of your car that you should always keep an eye on. Any damage to it, no matter how small or severe, could lead to costly repairs if not addressed immediately. Air bubbles in the radiator, white smoke escaping the exhaust pipes, coolant leaks, and engine overheating are some of the most noticeable signs that your head gasket is failing. Once you start experiencing these problems, you need to have it checked out right away.

Our repair services include a thorough assessment, full repair work, and final inspection and testing. Here's what to expect when you hire a head gasket repair expert through Airtasker:
Head Gasket Assessment

As soon as your Tasker arrives, they'll ask you several questions about the issues you're having with your car. They will conduct a thorough assessment to determine whether your head gasket can still be fixed or if it needs replacing.

Head Gasket Repair

Once your Tasker identifies the problem, they will set up the necessary tools and proceed with the repairs. If it's only a minor issue or leak, they will repair it using gasket sealants which are usually in the form of a paste, glue, or spray. But first, they must remove the thermostat and flush the cooling system with water before pouring the sealer inside. They will then run your vehicle for 50 minutes with the cap on before placing a new thermostat.

Once the engine is cooled, your Tasker will drench the cooling system with antifreeze, then fix and tighten the head bolts inside the engine. If using sealers and tightening the bolts doesn't fix the problem, then a replacement may be the best solution.

Head Gasket Final Inspection and Testing

Our Tasker will do a final inspection and perform several engine tests to make sure everything is functioning correctly. Once you're pleased with the results, they will pack up their tools and clean the area to ensure that no mess is left behind.
