      Why do head gaskets fail? Are there things we can do to keep them alive longer?

        Overheating is one culprit. The other is misfires/detonation.
        out of time combustion can cause undue stress on the head gasket.
        Its also important to keep the cooling system clean and correctly
        working. Coolant that is neglected can turn corrosive and eat/weaken
        gaskets. 🙂

          college man covered most of the reasons why head gaskets fail but the biggest reason is that the engine block is cast iron and the cylinder head is aluminum. Since they both expand and contract at a different rate when heated and cooled the gasket eventually tears apart. It’s called shearing.

          Manufactures have tried coating them with Teflon, Graphite and other slippery compounds to allow them to slide against one another without tearing . Today most head gaskets are stainless steel to allow the sliding action and rarely fail anymore.
