Timing Cover Gasket
A timing cover gasket serves to seal the gap between the timing cover and the engine. Depending on the design of your engine, it can vary in size and be made from different materials.
The main signs of a bad timing cover gasket are oil leaks and different contaminants under the cover.
Timing cover gasket replacement
- A timing gasket can be made from different materials. You may have either a standard gasket or o-ring style seal, or silicone-type one.
- A timing cover gasket should be replaced whenever the cover is removed. It is also a perfect idea to inspect all timing components for damage and wear.
