Do you feel unsure about the sounds your car makes as it turns over? Have you noticed your car is becoming slower to start? The signs of an aging battery become more obvious as time goes on.
You can check the physical state of your battery in your own time at home, or bring it to us for a free check-up at any time during our opening hours. To quickly inspect your own battery if you suspect you have problems, there are a few indicators of deterioration that are most common. Car batteries can swell in their casing as time goes on, or lose fluid – some older style batteries have clear indicators so you can check your own fluid levels, however this is not possible with newer maintenance-free battery models, which are fully sealed.
“You can generally tell your battery’s coming to the end of its life by the way the engine turns over, generally the engine will start to turn over a lot slower, you might not notice it straight away but over time gradually it will become slower and slower. One day you might go out to your car and all of a sudden you get click-click-click-click-click, and boom, and that generally indicates that there is a battery problem. That would be one of the first places you would look at, you can also find that when a starter motor goes, you will get the same sort of thing and it won’t be repetitive clicking, just more of a single click and clunk, and that will generally will indicate your starter motor as opposed to your battery.”
