Gaskets, Seals and Sealants (Cont’d) Cylinder head gaskets Prevent compression pressures, gases, and fluids from leaking Are located on the connection between the cylinder head and engine block The head gasket consists of a core, facing, and coating. Most have a metal fire ring surrounding the cylinder opening.

Gaskets, Seals and Sealants (Cont’d) Intake Manifold Gaskets: Fit between the manifold and cylinder head to seal the air/fuel mixture or intake air. are designed to provide a good seal under the changing temperatures it will be subject to. Some V-type engines use a valley pan style. V-type engines also use strip seals to seal the connection between the ends of the manifold and the block.

Exhaust manifold gaskets: Seal the connection between the cylinder head and the exhaust manifold Valve cover gaskets: Seal the connection between the valve cover and cylinder head; the gasket is not subject to pressures, but must be able to seal hot, thinning oil. Made of synthetic rubber, cork-rubber, or molded
