What is a Cylinder Head?

The cylinder head is often informally abbreviated to just head because sits above the cylinders on top of the engine. It closes in the top of the cylinder and with the help of a head gasket enables the engine to get compression within the combustion chamber.

In most engines the head retains the camshaft, valves, guides and followers. It also provides space for the passages that feed air and fuel to the combustion chamber and allows for the exhaust gases to escape. The joint between the head and the block below is sealed with a head gasket. The head can also be a place to mount the spark plugs, and fuel injectors.

Repair or replace?

It is not very often that a cylinder head needs to be renewed. Autoexperts Medway in Gillingham is situated both close to Rochester and Gillingham in Medway and our technicians can advice you of the best course of action to get your vehicle repaired.
In a water-cooled engine, the cylinder head contains internal ducts and passages. These passages allow coolant to cool and transfer of excess heat away from the head and therefore the engine.

A cylinder head if exposed to excessive heat can become distorted. Furthermore over time it may corrode internally causing coolant or gases to begin leaking. This may cause your engine to have low compression and lead to your head gasket needing to be renewed because of failure.
