Signs you need a new battery
There are certain things you should look for that might indicate you’re in need of a new battery.
Slow engine crank: You’ll notice that when you try to start your car, the engine is sluggish and putting out a “rur rur rur” starting noise.
Check engine light: When your battery power is weak, the check engine light or low coolant lights will often come on.
Low battery fluid level: Most batteries have a translucent casing that allows you to keep an eye on your battery’s fluid level. When it’s low, it’s time to bring it to Milito’s Auto Repair.
Bloated battery case: Excessive heat can cause your battery case to swell, which will decrease your battery life.
Pungent smells: If you notice an odor that’s similar to rotten eggs, that sulfur smell could mean that your battery is leaking, which also causes corrosion around where the + and – cable connections are located.
