The head gasket creates a seal between the engine block/cylinder and the cylinder head. Since the pressures and temperatures are so great, the head gasket must be more substantial than other gaskets. It will also go bad much easier, especially if the engine overheats and the head warps, even a slight amount.

 
   
 

A blown head gasket in your car can present serious problems such as coolant leaking into your car's oil pan and subsequent damage to your car's valves and pistons or warping of your engine's oil block. For this reason, it is important to know when your car has a bad head gasket.
