Will comprehensive insurance cover a blown head gasket?
I've noticed oil leaking down the gasket, and my coolant level is consistently dropping. I'm almost positive this is a blown or faulty head gasket. Will my insurance cover this?
“Even if you have comprehensive insurance, it probably won’t cover a blown gasket unless the damage was the result of an accident, act of God, or vandalism.
You’re probably thinking about either a manufacturer’s warranty or extended warranty, which covers damage to the vehicle associated with regular maintenance and wear and tear. In this case, check your current warranty to see if the gasket is covered. If not, you’ll have to pay out of pocket.”
