There is a lot going on in the engine compartment of your Nissan; it’s essentially the brains of the operation. Made up of several different parts, the engine itself a hardworking piece of machinery. With everything that the engine does at once, keeping all the oil and fluids in while keeping dirt and debris out is a pretty tough job. That's where the valve cover gasket comes in.
The valve cover gasket fits snugly between the cylinder head and valve cover, keeping oil from escaping the motor. Made from a high-quality insulator, the valve cover gasket also keeps dirt and various other particles out of the motor. Due to the heat that your Nissan engine produces while it runs, the gasket does break down over time and becomes brittle and prone to cracking. When this happens, the structural integrity of the valve cover gasket is compromised, potentially causing oil leaks and reduced engine performance. If an old gasket is not addressed in time, your Nissan could be facing the very real possibility of total engine failure. This is why it is important to know the warning signs that your valve cover gasket might be failing.
