The maintenance of auto battery involves periodic checking of the battery so that your car runs smoothly. Keep in mind the following for a longer hassle-free battery life:

  • Check Clamp: Make sure that the battery is firmly secured to the cradle and the cable clamps and lead wire contact is proper.

  • Avoid Grease: Keep the battery top clean and dry. Apply either petroleum jelly or Vaseline to cable clamps and terminals for proper lubrication. Never apply grease.

  • Use Distilled Water: Top up only with distilled water and maintain the level to the maximum level line. Never add acid.

  • Close Tightly: Keep the vent plugs closed tightly.

  • Check Vent: Ensure that the vent hose in the battery is not folded or damaged by the exhaust system.
