The Negative Impact Weather Has on Your Car Battery

Although the battery in your car is supposed to perform perfectly in normal weather conditions, it is those extreme temperatures that are really pushing the battery to its limits.

In the freezing cold weather, what is happening inside the car battery is those chemicals are freezing and getting sluggish just like the oil inside the engine. They tend to expand, and that can damage the casing and components inside the battery. If this occurs, it is something that cannot be repaired.

On the other end of the spectrum, when the temperatures are dangerously high for too long, the chemicals in the battery may start to evaporate. If any consistency is lost, the battery must work harder to be able to power up the car and perform that chemical reaction each time it starts.
