Why Engine Head Gaskets Fail ?

Head gaskets typically fail at the weakest point, which is the thinnest area between adjacent cylinders. The gasket cracks or burns through, allowing compression to leak between the cylinders. This causes a drastic drop in power that is hard to ignore. The engine may still run, but very poorly. If the gasket leaks coolant, it may cause the engine to overheat. Coolant in the crankcase or cylinder is also not a good thing to have because it dilutes the oil and accelerates wear. If enough coolant leaks into a cylinder, it may even “hydrolock” the engine preventing it from turning over when you attempt to start it.

Your car’s engine is made up of hundreds of complex components working together to ensure that your vehicle starts and runs properly. Over time, however, these components can wear out, resulting in a loss of performance and fuel economy. Here you’ll learn what a “tune-up” is, and tips to help you know when it’s time for a tune up.

What Is A Tune-Up?

service 1st-ramys-garageThe nature of an engine “tune-up” has changed considerably over the years, but the basics of how a gasoline engine works has not. Clean gas and air needs to be driven to the vehicle’s cylinders where combustion initiated by a spark plug creates the power necessary to move a heavy vehicle. Clogged fuel injectors, dirty air and fuel filters, and corroded spark plugs can all decrease engine performance and contribute to decreased gas mileage and performance. That’s why we examine your vehicle’s air filter when you stop in, and why we recommend that you follow manufacturers’ recommendations for replacing such key components as fuel filters, PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) valves, and spark plugs when they are no longer working at maximum efficiency.

Tune Up Tips

It may be time for a “tune-up” if you notice one or more of the following conditions when starting or driving your vehicle:

A decrease in gas mileage noticeable loss in power your engine running “rough” or stalling when at a stop. Engine “knocking” when accelerating or running-on after the ignition is turned off your “Check Engine” or “Service Engine” light remaining on after initial start. Each individual engine has a multitude of tune up needs and that’s why we offer a range of engine services, from simple checks to more complex repairs.

Check Engine Light


Modern cars are more intelligent than their classic cousins of yesteryear. They all come equipped with an onboard computer that keeps an eye on key systems and warns you when things may be going wrong. Your CHECK ENGINE light is the computer’s way of telling you that there may be a problem and your car needs service as soon as possible.


If your CHECK ENGINE light if flashing or glowing, it light can mean anything from a loose gas cap to a poorly functioning oxygen sensor, or a catalytic converter that needs replacing.

Some of you enjoy diagnosing and repairing these problems yourselves. Some prefer to take your car to a trusted, certified technician. For both of you, Ramy’s Garage has the answer.

Below is a list of a few of the possible problems that could cause your CHECK ENGINE light to go on.

  • Problem with the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor or circuit
  • System Running Too Lean or Too Rich
  • Cylinder Misfire
  • Knock Sensor Circuit Malfunction
  • Insufficient EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) Flow
  • Catalyst System Efficiency below Threshold

These are just a few of the hundreds of codes, causes, and symptoms. Each has multiple fixes.

Our Engine services include:

Replacement of the fuel filter

Replacement of all spark plugs and wires (this may involve removing a manifold on certain engines, especially those with a V cylinder configuration)Replacement of various other ignition components, such as the distributor cap and rotor. Adjustment of the distributor cap angle on vehicles without electronic, or secondary ignition usually with the aid of a timing light. Inspection of serpentine belts and replacement as needed. Replacement of the air filter Adjustment of the clutch on vehicles equipped with a manual transmission Battery service as needed, including cleaning any corrosion on the terminals

Replacement of the PCV valve

Ramy’s Garage certified technicians can hook your car up to state of the art equipment that allows them to talk to that onboard computer. Reading the codes generated by the computer is just the first step in determining why your CHECK ENGINE is on, but it gives the technician the clues he needs to use his training and expertise to get to the root of the problem.
