Did you know that a maintenance free battery, really isn’t maintenance free? Here’s why,
during normal operation a process called “gassing” occurs within the battery. Hydrogen gas is released from the acid used inside the battery. The battery has small pressure regulated vents that allow the hydrogen gas to escape. It then mixes with other dirt and debris under the hood and produces corrosion on the top of the battery, terminals and cables. It is this corrosion that requires routine maintenance to be removed. After thoroughly cleaning the battery and a protectant is applied to slow down further corrosion build up. The auto mechanics at inMOTION inspect your battery at every service visit and will keep you informed of it’s condition.
Have you ever been in a hurry, and walked out to your vehicle, only to have your vehicle not start? Maybe not even click? It’s critical that you know the warning signs of a dying battery, but also be aware that not all batteries will give you the courtesy of a warning:
• slow to start
• electrical components not working properly
• warning light on your dashboard

Since we get extremes in both temperature and weather conditions here in Lincoln, that can cause your battery to need replacing more often.
