How do you know if your car needs a NEW BATTERY?
The followings are Warning Signs That May Indicate that Your Battery Is on the Fritz:
SLOW ENGINE CRANK
When you attempt to start the vehicle, the STARTING OF THE ENGINE IS SLOW and it takes longer than normal to start.
CHECK ENGINE LIGHT
CHECK ENGINE LIGHT might appear when your battery power is weak.
The BATTERY LIGHT can get triggered when the charging system is NOT CHARGING the battery to a voltage above 13.5 volts. This could be due to Corroded Battery Cable Terminals or Damaged Battery Plates, or signal a problem with the Alternator or voltage regulator.
LOW BATTERY FLUID LEVEL
Car batteries typically have a part of the casing that’s Translucent so you can see the BATTERY’S FLUID LEVEL. If the fluid level is below the Lead Plates / energy conductor inside, it’s time to have the battery and charging system tested.
The Swelling, Bloating Battery Case
If the battery casing looks like this, it means that EXCESSIVE HEAT is causing the battery case to swell, decreasing the battery life.
Leaking also causes the CORROSION around the POSTS - where the + and – cables connections are located, the gunk need to be removed; otherwise, the car may not start.
Usually a battery can last well beyond THREE YEARS, however, it is recommended to inspect its current condition once a year.
