A New Battery in FORT WORTH

Hello FORT WORTH drivers, let's talk about batteries. Car batteries are just like any rechargeable battery. They will eventually wear out and die. If you are shopping for a new battery in FORT WORTH, here's some auto advice to help you.There are two measurements to consider when purchasing a new battery: cold cranking amps and reserve capacity.

Automotive Tips from Multistate Transmissions: Battery Testing

The simple fact is that 70% of car batteries fail within 4 years. They just need to be replaced at Multistate Transmissions when they are no longer able to hold a full charge.Batteries are a big ticket item for most FORT WORTH drivers and it’s tempting to put off buying a new one as long as possible. But a battery that cannot hold a full charge requires the alternator to work extra hard, causing it to wear out prematurely.Your Multistate Transmissions service advisor can test your battery to see if it should be replaced. Testing is a good idea for TX drivers because a battery might still be good, but become dead because of a bad alternator or even a worn serpentine belt and tensioner.

Of course, the batteries we're most concerned with here at Multistate Transmissions are those in our customer's vehicles. Just like the batteries in our smoke detectors or TV remote, they wear out and need to be replaced . This can be thought of as the power output used to start a cold vehicle engine. The number of cold cranking amps you need depends on your vehicle and where you live in TX, specifically how cold it is. (Many FORT WORTH drivers have first-hand experience trying to start their car on a cold winter morning.) The two factors are that the colder your vehicle's engine is, the more power it takes to turn the engine over to get it started. It has all that cold, sluggish oil to contend with.The other factor is that the chemical reaction in the battery that creates electrical energy is less efficient when the temperature d ... read more
