Extreme Temperatures & Your Car Battery

Your car battery is susceptible to damage as a result of the temperature outside. Since you want to take good care of your vehicle, you need to know what hot and cold temperatures can do.

Hot temperatures only get hotter under the hood of your car. This means that your battery could malfunction and even overcharge. The battery fluid could evaporate. You may even find that certain elements are more likely to corrode when it gets too hot outside. Cold temperatures can hurt your battery, too. As it gets colder, your oil gets thicker. This can cause your battery to work in overdrive to heat it up. You may also find that your battery has a reduced recharge rate and a reduced capacity.
