Your battery may be giving you signs that it is time to get a new one without you even realizing it. It is important to recognize the signs and take action before you are left stranded. Here are some of the signs that it's time to get a new car battery.
- Slow Starting Engine
The older your battery gets, the more worn out it is. This means that when you turn on your car, it might take a little longer to get started. When this starts happening, you should contact one of our mobile mechanics to get your battery replaced.
- Check Engine Light Appears
Sometimes when your battery is about to die, your check engine light will come on. This is a warning sign for you to check your battery because it is at the end of it's lifespan.
- Low Battery Fluid
If you look at your car battery, there should be a clear section so you can see how much fluid is in it. If it gets low, you should get it looked at before it completely dies.
- Enlarging Battery Case
This typically happens if you live in a warmer area. The heat can ruin your battery and cause the battery case to enlarge or shape itself in weird ways. If your battery case doesn't look normal, hire a mobile mechanic and get it replaced.
- Battery Leak
You might notice the smell before the physical leak. If you notice a rotten egg smell, its the sulfur from the battery. Since you can smell it, that means there is a leak. When a battery begins to leak, it may stop working completely soon after so get an appointment with a mobile mechanic.
- Old Age
Your car battery can last longer depending on a bunch of different factors, but typically you should change it right after the three year mark. Once you have used the same car battery for three years, it will start giving you problems. So be proactive rather than reactive when it comes to your car battery.
- Dimmed Lights
If your lights are beginning to dim, it may be a sign your battery is getting weak. At some point it will completely stop working, so take it to a mechanic, don't just ignore it.
- Corrosion On Connections
Look at the connections on top of your car battery. If they look corroded in any way, your battery won't have much longer left. It will get weaker and weaker so you might as well replace it.
If you notice any of these signs, you should contact Wrench and hire one of our local mobile mechanics. It is best to get this service out of the way before your battery completely dies. If you happen to let it go too long and get stuck at work, don't worry. Since we are a mobile company, we will come to you.
