If you want to go anywhere in your car, you need an excellent battery. The battery in your car is what gives your car’s engine the initial charge to get it started. With a dead battery, you will not be going anywhere soon. Here are some things to consider when thinking about the battery in your car or truck:
A complete evaluation. The automotive experts at the Rad Air Complete Car Care and Tire Center in Seven Hills know exactly what to look for in your battery. They will quickly identify whether the battery is holding a charge and how old it is.
How old is your battery? Car batteries last for about three to five years depending on the type of driving that you do, whether mostly city driving or highway trips. This is critical because your car battery recharges as you drive your car. When you only drive your car on short trips, it doesn’t have a chance to recharge.
Weather matters. With Northeastern Ohio’s frigid winter weather, starting a cold engine can take a toll on your battery. If your car seems resistant to starting, you may need a new battery to help get it going.
Look for corrosion. Corrosion can develop on the battery posts, which can prevent the charge from moving efficiently. A new battery and cleaning the posts will help immensely.
A quick fix. Luckily, getting your car back on the road after a dead battery is easy and affordable. Batteries can be changed while you wait.
