Batteries

How can you tell if your batteries is low or dieing, or if it is your connections, or if it just needs to be cleaned?

you can check the specific gravety

My two cents again.I have found that even on a maintenance free bat you can pry off the caps and check the level.get a hydrometer and check each cell.one bad cell will cause a failure.Also put a multi meter on the posts and start car you should see charging about 14 volts.Inspect cables for white powder and remove it with a brush made of wire,clean thewire good.If you see acid on the outside baking soda will neutarilze it CAUTION do not get it inside the batt.rinse it off with fresh water.
Most bats dont make it past 4 years keep that in mind they sulfate where they break down and short themself out.I have had one Bat for 7 years but it is a high dollar one called an Optima that is the best one I think but like I said High dollar.hope this helps

Most parts stores can load test a battery for you free of charge.

I prefer Delco batteries for my vehicles. No leaks, fit well and best cost in my belief.
