A head gasket is a gasket the separates the cylinder head and the block. It separates the coolant passages, cylinders and oil passages. There are many other posts on this page that will provide more details.

The head gasket provides a seal between the head and the engine block.

If it is leaking from a bad head gasket, it is because of a bad head gasket. If it is leaking from a bad intake manifold gasket, it is because of a bad intake manifold gasket.

The head bolts to the block. The head gasket goes in between the head and block to seal the head to the block.

hi if you replace the head gasket you will need to have the head repaired and machined as the head alloy eat's out which causes the gasket to fail
