Similar to a cork on top of a wine bottle, an automobile needs a device to capture of all the oil inside the engine, without any threat of a spill. That is where the Mustang valve covers and gaskets come in. A Mustang requires oil in order to operate, and as a result, many of the engine’s interior parts get soaked into the oil overtime.
In order to prevent potentially harmful leaks to parts outside of the engine, or worse, to the car’s exterior, the Mustang valve cover seals the engine from the top. In addition to keeping the oil inside, the Ford Mustang valve cover keeps dirt or other debris from entering the engine or the Mustang intake mainfold.
The Mustang valve cover itself is made it out of medal or aluminum, and is linked to the engine by way of a rubber or cork gasket. Unlike the Mustang valve cover, the attached gasket is constantly exposed to the inner workings of the oil-filled engine, and as a result, is subject to whatever lubrication the device gives off. Together, the Mustang valve cover and the Mustang gasket provide a sturdy and reliable stopper at the top of the engine to keep the oil where it needs to be.
