Hello and welcome! My name is Fareed, and this blog is about car repair. I plan to write about smash repair, body work, painting and other aspects of the industry. I also hope to include a few posts that will help you assess whether or not something is wrong with your car. I have worked on my own car for years, and recently, I've been embraced as the neighbourhood mechanic -- all my friends come to me for help. I'm not a professional mechanic, but I feel confident sharing this info with you as I've been working on cars for years. I am happy you found my blog and hope that you enjoy reading!
There is nothing more frustrating that attempting to start your car and finding that the battery is dead. However, the battery on your car will often provide signs that it is failing before to stops working completely. Below is a guide to the signs that your car battery may be about to fail and some top tips on how you can extend the life of your car battery.
Signs Your Car Battery is About to Die
How to Extend the Life of Your Car Battery
You can extend the life of your car battery by taking a few simple steps to maintain it.
Inspect for Signs of Damage
You should periodically inspect the battery for signs of damage. If you notice any damage, you should immediately have the battery examined by an auto battery repair shop. You should also ensure that the battery and battery cables are secured in place. A loose battery is likely to move about and become damaged. Loose cables can become disconnected as the car moves around.
If you notice any corrosion which has built up on the terminals of the battery, this should be removed using bicarbonate of soda. Simply mix a little bicarbonate of soda with water until it forms a paste and then apply it to the battery terminals. Because bicarbonate of soda is an alkaline, it will slowly eat away at and neutralise the acidic corrosion.
