If my head gasket blows on the highway while driving, will my GEICO insurance cover it?
"I was driving on the freeway and my gasket blew. Will GEICO pay for the repair if I have full coverage?"
“Typically, car insurance covers accidents—you hit someone, someone hits you, or something hits your car. Common types of insurance, such as liability, collision, and comprehensive, don’t extend to mechanical failures like the issue you describe.
There are special insurances designed for these issues, such as mechanical breakdown insurance, which you can purchase through GEICO, but it’s unlikely you would have it included even under a full coverage plan.”
