How the Car Battery Reacts to Extreme Changes in Temperatures

The harsh weather conditions each season are putting your car battery through some significant challenges. If the battery is beginning to show signs of trouble, here are a few reasons why the problem is occurring.

In the middle of a harsh summer, the severe heat is causing the chemicals inside the battery to evaporate. Even a slight loss of chemicals will have a negative impact on the ability of the vehicle to operate in a peak state.

When the freezing weather arrives, now the chemicals are going through another extreme. If they get frozen, they bulge and cause the casing around the car battery to expand. This damages the battery beyond repair, and could result in it a total fail the next time you try to start the car.

Bring your vehicle to Riverhead Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram and our crew will inspect the battery for any issues that could impact your safety on the road.
