Nothing lasts forever, but usually when something is new, you expect it to last a while. When you replace a broken part on a car with a new part, you don’t expect to be replacing it soon after.
We had a Dodge in the shop that I had recently done work on before the dealership sold it. It came in about 500 miles after being sold with a complaint of an oil leak. When I opened the hood I quickly found that it was coming from the valve cover, which I had replaced the gasket on. I pulled the cover off and the gasket had a complete tear through it in that spot. I don’t know how that happened, but we got a new gasket under warranty and hopefully this one doesn’t do the same.
