How do I know my car’s battery needs a look?
Modern cells leave behind a series of tell-tale signs which indicate that they are nearing the end of their service life.
The most obvious ones are listed here:
Most batteries that come as OE for vehicles - from SUVs to sedans - have a translucent casing. You can easily check if the fluid level is touching the lead conductor plates inside. If the fluid level is below these plates, you must know that it is time to visit a facility like Blackbrook Motors. It may be time for fluid refill, failing which you must opt for car batteries replacement in St. Helens.
- A bloated and swollen case
Modern car cells are almost always sealed so that the acids inside do not spill even while driving off-road. Due to excessive heat and poor maintenance, the case may degenerate and bloat. It is a warning signal that you need a new unit.
Despite repeated attempts at starting your vehicle’s engine, you will notice that it does not crank. An irritating noise will instead surface.
Even when the engine starts, you will notice a rather sluggish cranking. This phenomenon may occur more and more often, signalling that your car battery in St. Helens needs a professional check-up and possibly a replacement.
- An unmistakable rotten smell inside the passenger compartment
When your car’s cell is about to expire, the chemicals inside - especially Hydrochloric acid - decomposes and releases this gas. It is an obvious indication that you need car batteries replacement in St. Helens.
