Prolonged service life of a vehicle depends on a variety of many factors dependent to a greater or lesser degree on the driver himself, the make of car as well as the technical state of all of the components of the motor vehicle. Given that the cylinder head is one of the very critical elements of each car engine, it requires a lot of special care and good servicing. This is crucial for efficient operation of each motor vehicle equipped with a drive unit. Even the tiniest micro-cracks of the cylinder head have enormous effect on deterioration of the drive unit performance. In order to avoid any nasty surprises, it is so important to quickly detect the failure or defect that can lead to a very serious damage of the whole engine.

Cylinder head

The most common reasons for cylinder head damage:
- mechanical failure of the engine’s valve timing system;
- improper, unskilled operation of the car not in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions;
- natural wear and tear of the material;
- leaky head gasket.

The most important task of every engine’s cylinder head is to tightly close the space of the air-fuel mixture combustion chamber. In order to ensure proper operation of the drive unit and proper functioning of the valve timing mechanism that is in the engine block, cylinder heads often have quite complicated shapes, and there are in it a lot of tiny tracts responsible for efficient cooling and lubrication of the engine. Each head is typically made from durable light alloys or cast iron, and is, or at least should be, manufactured with extremely high precision. It is in it that the camshaft is located in a lot of models of modern cars, as well as valve stem guides and valve faces situated in special seats. In the cars where the camshaft is not located in the head, instead of it there is a valve block, that is an assembly of connections responsible of the proper operation of the drive unit.

In the event of overheating of the engine or burnt valve seats, or any deformation or unsealing of the head, its reworking or complete replacement is necessary. Disassembly and reassembly of the head requires a lot of knowledge and experience, therefore this operation is financially costly. Taking into account the cost of buying a new head for any Opel model, the total cost of repair can exceed the market value of the car. Therefore, a more efficient way to go is the option of buying a used and fully inspected cylinder head offered by our professional online service.

The cylinder head is a crucial component of every car engine, and its proper functioning is essential for the efficient operation of the motor vehicle. The cylinder head is responsible for closing the combustion chamber where the air-fuel mixture is ignited, and it plays a significant role in the valve timing mechanism that is present in the engine block. It is essential to pay special attention to the cylinder head's maintenance and servicing to avoid any serious damage to the engine.

There are several reasons why the cylinder head can be damaged. One of the most common reasons is the mechanical failure of the engine's valve timing system. If the valve timing system is not working correctly, it can cause undue stress on the cylinder head, leading to cracks and leaks. Another reason is improper, unskilled operation of the car not in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. This can lead to excessive wear and tear on the cylinder head, making it more susceptible to damage. Finally, natural wear and tear of the material and a leaky head gasket can also cause significant damage to the cylinder head. Cylinder heads are typically made from durable light alloys or cast iron and have intricate shapes with many tiny tracts responsible for efficient cooling and lubrication of the engine. In modern cars, the camshaft is often located in the cylinder head, along with valve stem guides and valve faces situated in special seats. However, in cars where the camshaft is not located in the head, there is a valve block, which is an assembly of connections responsible for the proper operation of the drive unit.

If the engine overheats, or there are burnt valve seats, or any deformation or unsealing of the head, the cylinder head may need to be reworked or replaced entirely. Disassembling and reassembling the cylinder head requires extensive knowledge and experience, making it financially costly. In some cases, the cost of buying a new cylinder head can exceed the market value of the car. Hence, a more efficient way to deal with this is to buy a used and fully inspected cylinder head offered by a professional online service. The cylinder head is a vital component of the engine that requires proper maintenance and servicing to ensure the efficient operation of the motor vehicle. Any damage to the cylinder head can cause significant damage to the engine, making it essential to address any issues with the cylinder head immediately. Regular maintenance and inspection can help prevent costly repairs or replacement of the cylinder head.
