Constant exposure to high temperatures, high pressures, vibrations and contact with hot fluids over a period of time will cause even the best gasket or seal to develop leaks. Except for very rare cases of catastrophic failure, gasket leaks start out as small drips that you may first notice as spots under your car.
Engine Oil Leaks

Where the fuel pump mounts to the timing case cover a gasket provides a tight seal. Although this gasket is usually reliable, engine vibration can cause the bolts to come loose. When this happens, oil can seep out around the fuel pump.

In modern vehicles, the most common causes for fuel leaks are the fuel lines and their fitting which may be damaged or crack due to normal wear and tear. Fuel tank leaks are also common since they can be damaged or begin to corrode. The fuel injection system could be a source of fuel leaks as well.
If your vehicle`s fuel pump cannot get gas from the tank to the engine, you will have trouble starting your car. The car will struggle to start and run because the pump cannot push enough gas through. A worn pump loses its pressure and the engine is being starved of gasoline.
With a fuel leak, a car is never safe to drive.

In addition, leaks in the fuel system are a common cause of car fires. Since gas is extremely combustible, it is possible that it may spark a fire, either inside the car or elsewhere, if it leaks. Therefore, fixing the leak as soon as possible is highly recommended.

Left unaddressed, a small oil leak can grow into a larger, much more expensive repair. Plus, if the leak worsens while a vehicle is in operation, it can cause the engine to seize. This can create a dangerous and hazardous situation for passengers in your vehicle and other motorists on the road.
A bad enough head gasket leak will cause the engine to lose compression. This can lead to the engine running roughly at idle, knocking and even stalling. However, other problems can cause the engine to run roughly or knock.
Is it safe to drive with a blown head gasket? No, the sooner you get it fixed, the better. Aside from the damage it will do to your engine, driving with a blown head gasket can be dangerous.
