  • High heat can force some fluid out of the battery vents in the form of a gas. This causes a chemical reaction with the lead and other materials on the battery terminals in the form of corrosion. About half of premature battery failures are caused by loss of battery fluid, reducing efficiency.

  • Yes, cleaning corrosion off the top of your battery once a year can help maintain proper connectivity between the battery and your terminals. Before cleaning your battery and terminals, remember that corrosion is caustic. Always wear gloves and proper eye protection. To remove the corrosion, mix some baking soda in water. Then use a toothbrush to gently scrub the battery terminals and cable clamps with the mixture.

  • Les Schwab offers free battery visual inspections, electronic battery testing, and charging.
