One Reason Why Your Subaru Head Gasket Repair May Not Last?
In the Picture below you will see the “Whiz Wheel” marks I often comment about and express opposition to.
This is a far cry from a refinishing average of RA 50; this head gasket had no chance of sealing against such a coarse surface and as a result it didn’t. The Customer had a general repair shop do this repair; they did it in the car using improper repair methods and as a result the repair did not last.
Using the right parts and having the repair done by a Skilled Subaru Technician who takes pride in what they do is the right way to go. This will yield better results than a hurried repair done by the lowest bidder, or someone who has to work on anything that comes in the door, especially if they use a whiz wheel to clean and prep the surfaces. This surface could have just as easily be done at the Subaru Dealership but I would like to add this was an ” Ebay Gasket Kit”
So if faced with a Head Gasket repair on your Subaru, ask the right questions.
Will the Engine come out?
How will the Surface be prepared?
What kind of Head Gasket will you use?
