The summer heat can become exhaustive and has a tendency to wear people down fast. This is also true for your vehicle and its electrical system, since it has to work more to keep the car or truck cool. One part that is critical to this system is the vehicle battery, and summer temperatures actually affect the battery more than cooler temperatures. All batteries wear down and eventually have to be replaced. This can happen between 1 and 5 years depending on use, care, and climates. Many batteries require maintenance and need to be refilled with fluid, since it evaporates over time. Heat causes battery fluid to evaporate, hence breaking down the battery and its life span. To prevent this make sure you have distilled water on hand or battery fluid to refill a battery low on fluid. During the summer months inspect the battery at least twice and perform any required maintenance. This week’s tips from the Team at DitY Auto Repair have a summer and welcome back to the start of school.
