How Long Do Gaskets Last?

One thing that you may be wondering is how long you can expect your gaskets to last. This is probably because you were wondering if it is time for a change or checkup. There is no single answer to this question.

How long a gasket will last ultimately depends on the material from which it is made, the quality of the gasket, and the conditions that it is exposed to in your engine. Rubber gaskets tend to last between 20,000 and 50,000 miles, depending on the heat and pressure they must withstand on a daily basis. The typical manifold gasket is intended to last from between 50,000 to 75,000 miles.

You cannot depend on averages to determine if it is time to replace your gaskets. It is best to have them regularly inspected by a professional such as the service experts at Ardmore Nissan to be sure.
