Head Gasket Repair Cost
Thursday, 22 November 2012
Not too long ago, if you were suffering from a blown head gasket you were in real trouble. Not only would you have to have your vehicle towed to a garage, you would be looking down the wrong end of a mechanics bill possibly in the hundreds of pounds. This is because the mechanic will have to strip down the engine, remove the cylinder head and access the damage that has been caused. Should the damage not be to severe thenthe head gasket may have to be rebored or in a worst case scenario the head gasket will need to be completely replaced.
The reason a head gasket repair has such a high cost involved is not the cost of the parts themselves, head gaskets are relatively cheap to buy, it is the time-consuming nature of changing a head gasket that really makes the job so expensive. So what you are really paying for when it comes to a head gasket replacement is the labour which can take anything from 4hrs to 10hrs to complete and remember there are certain garages who will just charge you more because you happen to have an expensive vehicle. We have had reports of some Audi owners being told a head gasket replacement will be £4000 and upwards, criminal but true.
Luckily vehicle owners have an alternative to the massive bills offered from garages, as blown head gaskets, warped heads and cracked blocks can be repaired at home or even the side of the road. As well as being a cheaper option than having your vehicle towed to a garage, Steel Seal is just a simple pour in formula with no mechanical knowledge needed and takes less than an hour to complete the treatment.
Unfortunately Steel Seal like many other technologically advanced products, has it doubters and cynical mechanics who will tell anyone who will listen that a liquid cannot possibly fix a blown head gasket and its nothing but snake oil. Of course these same people would be very wrong indeed, Steel seal has a proven track record to repair, not only blown head gaskets but cracked blocks and warped heads with these repairs being permanent due to the unique mix of chemicals used in the formula.
Steel Seal has been tried and tested by thousands of satisfied customers and is available from over 1000 motor factors throughout UK and Ireland. You can find hundreds of testimonials on the Steel Seal website from happy Steel Seal customers and some customers who it didn’t work for but wanted to say how happy they were with the service.
Using Steel Seal could not be simpler, pour a bottle into the vehicles radiator, ensure the vehicle gets to running temperature and once the vehicle has hit running temperature, the Steel Seal will begin to react and be drawn to any hotspots or excesses in heat due to holes or cracks in the head gasket. Steel Seal will then start to set in the cracks and holes creating a seal which will be able to withstand the extreme temperatures and pressures found within the engine.
Unlike many other similar products, Steel Seal contains no fibrous materials that can clog the engine and instead relies on a chemical reaction to repair head gaskets. Steel Seal is suitable to use in all types of motor vehicle, regardless of age and engine size. You can find a full instruction video on how to perform a treatment on the Steel Seal website home page. With Steel Seal you can avoid the head gasket repair cost.
