Start Your Engine | Car Battery

You can make your battery last so that you don’t have to hunt for a New Orleans auto repair shop so often.

You’re looking forward to the Satchmo Summerfest this weekend. You’re just hoping your car cooperates and the battery doesn’t die. It seems to do so almost every summer. It’s true that New Orleans’ hot summers are hard on batteries but AAA has some suggestions to help extend the life of your battery. Among them:

"Keep the battery terminals clean and have them inspected regularly for corrosion.

"Start the car before operating accessories and drive it to allow the battery to get topped off by your vehicle’s alternator, which produces electricity and charges the battery after voltage drops. ...

"Regularly check your car battery’s water level indicator, which will alert you when your battery needs more water. Be sure to use distilled water.

"Avoid frequent short trips in the car. ...

"Do not overcharge your battery. Lead-acid batteries that overcharge can release potentially explosive oxygen and hydrogen gases. And it also leads to decomposition of the water in the battery, causing it to prematurely age."

When you need a New Orleans auto repair shop to check your battery, or put in a new one, call Twin Tire and Auto Care. Twin Tire has been the trusted auto repair and auto care shop in the New Orleans area since 1973. Twin Tire has three convenient locations to provide reliable auto repair and auto care for cars and light trucks – Hammond, Harvey and Marrero.
