A cylinder head is the closed end of a cylinder (located in a car's engine block). It sits above the cylinder block, closing the top of the cylinder and forming the combustion chamber. The cylinder head coordinates airflow in and out of the engine. Since the cylinder head's chief function is to seal the cylinders properly, insufficient compression results in the car being difficult to drive. To have your cylinder head checked and repaired, talk to Engines R Us Pros's cylinder head repair and reconditioning specialists today.
Signs of Cracked Heads
A cracked head is a serious engine problem that can lead to your car breaking down. Even if the car engine won't fail, it will definitely suffer from poor performance. The following are some symptoms of a cracked engine head:
- Oil leaks
- Low engine compression (engine combustion pressure escapes)
- Coolant leaks (leading to engine overheating)
- Engine head smoke
- Engine missing
At Engines R Us Pros, we will have a knowledgeable service professional check for cracked heads on your car's engine.
Head shaving, also known as milling is the process of ensuring that the head is flat and true when changing a head gasket. Milling the heads ensures that you get a perfect seal. When changing head gaskets, let the machine shop inspect the head and tell you if it needs milling. At Engines R Us Pros, we will inspect your heads, determine whether they need milling, and shave them.
