What’s Killing Your Battery and Why
If your car battery is having trouble, your car has some ways of telling you. Foremost, if your car has problems starting, your battery is having an issue. Even after starting, if your vehicle is running sluggish, it indicates a battery problem. If something is wrong with your battery, the check engine light will sometimes come on. When this happens, come over to the Auto Clinic of Maryland.
Low Battery Fluid
Low battery fluid will have your running less than optimally. There is an indicator on the battery case that will tell you when the fluid is low. If you notice this, bring your car to us so we can recharge your battery. If you open the hood and see the case around your battery swollen, you can blame the heat. Excessive hot temperatures are particularly harmful to batteries, just like excessive cold. If your battery case gets into this condition, it will need immediate replacing.
Corrosion and old age will severely affect your battery’s operation. Corrosion is caused by leaks and causes gunk to form around the wires and terminals. The battery will need a deep cleaning or possibly a replacement. Old age is also bound to happen to your battery. A good battery will last four to six years. After that, it will need replacing.
Mechanical problems are not the only thing that damages the battery. Everyday human activities cause wear, tear, and depletion. We all know that leaving your headlights on drains the battery, and leaving your inside lights and radio on when the ignition is not running can drain it as well. Being more mindful of your driving habits can help keep your battery alive for as long as possible.
