Tips For Maintaining Your Car Battery
By Jason Miller
You seldom think about your car battery until you are in a
deserted parking garage late at night and your car wont start.
Then it becomes very important in your life.
The 2 posts that the battery cables are connected to must be
clean and free of corrosion. Corrosion can prevent the cables
from getting a charge from the battery and prevent your car from
starting. Simply keeping your terminals clean can keep those
troubles away. Get a wire brush and scrub the contacts clean. If
you are really motivated, you can remove the cables and scrub the
inside of connector and the terminal post. You should have a good
contact after you complete this little chore. You also need to
check your water level, especially when it is hot outside.
If the water level drops too low, the battery will have a
difficult time holding a charge. Next time you fill up, ask the
guy at the service station to check it for you. Dont wait until
your car is slow to crank up. If your battery is not putting out
enough juice, it may be too late to save it. The time to save
your car battery is before these symptoms show up and always have
a pair of jumper cables or a battery booster in your truck. You
never know if that old battery has cranked for the last time.
