I love this kind of stuff!

Do you want to know why?

Well, I’ll tell ya!

It’s because I know NOTHING about cars, so I need all the help I can get.

A mechanic at a shop in Colorado named Kelly posted a video on TikTok and shared some of his automotive knowledge with viewers.

The topic of this particular video: what is a head gasket?

Kelly said the head gasket “seals the compression, oil, and coolant, all in the same gasket.”

He added, “We actually had a Honda in here last week. It had low compression, because the cylinder head gasket wasn’t sealing properly, and it wouldn’t start the car.”

Now you know!
