Battery testing is a quick, straightforward procedure that can be performed either in-store or in an O’Reilly parking lot by a Parts Professional within minutes. Car battery testing can help you determine if your vehicle’s battery is failing, and can help prevent a dead battery in extreme temperatures, which could leave you stranded. Signs that your car battery may be dying include slow engine cranking, if the engine takes longer than usual to turn over, or if you notice corrosion near the battery’s terminals, which indicates an acid leak. Since it can be difficult to tell how much starting power your battery has, it is important to get your battery tested as part of a routine maintenance schedule. Surprisingly, one out of every five batteries tested are in need of a replacement, but you may not realize your battery is nearing the end of its life until your car won’t start. Let your local Gilroy, CA O’Reilly Battery Testing help you understand the health of your car battery to avoid being stranded in your vehicle.
Keep your vehicle starting consistently by choosing the right battery for your car, truck, or SUV.Learn More
