Batteries can do a lot of things while we’re not looking.
Here are a few symptoms that may indicate your battery needs attention. Before it is too late.
- Slow Engine Crank:
When you attempt to start the vehicle, the cranking of the engine is sluggish and takes longer than normal to start.
- Check Engine Light:
The check engine light sometimes appears when your battery power is weak.
- Low Battery Fluid Level:
Car batteries typically have a part of the casing that’s translucent so you can always keep an eye on your 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.
- Battery Leak:
Leaking also causes the corrosion around the posts : (where the + and – cable connections are located.: ) The gunk may need to be removed; otherwise, your car may not start.
- The Swelling and Bloating Battery Case:
If your battery casing looks like this you can blame excessive heat for causing your battery case to swell, decreasing your battery life.
- Old Age:
Your battery can last well beyond three years but, at the very least, have its current condition inspected on a yearly basis when it reaches the three-year mark.
