Bought a new battery for my vehicle the other day and put it in . bought it from Advance and it is not a maintenance free one. you can pop the caps off the top and fill it with water. I've have usually only had maint. free ones so i was just wondering how often you have to fill the cells with water. it is an Autocraft silver battery by the way. thanks

Return it and get a maintenance free one. Those type batteries are a PITA. I'd check the fluid level once a month, more often in hotter conditions.

I usually just check mine when I change the oil. Remember if you add water to it be sure its purified water.
