Any time you separate the cylinder head from the engine block you need to
replace this gasket. A good sign that you need to replace a "blown" gasket
is if you notice your oil looking cloudy and milky. This means that there is
a break somewhere that is allowing fluids to mix, and can create larger
problems. Low compression numbers also indicate that this gasket may be
beginning to fail
Remember that all head bolts are single use and should be replaced every
time they are removed.
This gasket is for TSI engines only.
