Battery in Covington, LA

Especially during cold weather, it’s important to make sure your vehicle’s battery is in good shape. A dead battery is a hassle in good weather, but no one wants to be stuck in the cold! Follow these tips from Northshore Toyota to make sure your vehicle is in tip-top shape.

The following things are warnings that your battery needs replaced, or more extensive service could be needed.

  • If your battery is over 3 years old, you should have it load-tested by a trained service professional
  • If your engine doesn’t turn over immediately
  • If a rotten egg smell is coming from your engine (corrosion from sulfuric acid smells like rotten eggs)
  • The battery case is swollen or bloated
  • Your check engine light is on
