Calcium alloy is optimized to produce a fine-grain, corrosion-resistant grid to maximize corrosion resistance, increase cycle life and reduce water consumption for battery durability.
Robust envelope separators are designed with a puncture-resistant back web with a rib design to improve acid circulation and provide low resistance, which allows the battery to remain cooler to extend battery life.
100 percent pressure tested to help avoid future leaks and for added strength and rigidity.
100 percent electrical-short tested.
Supplies the energy needed to start the engine, provides the current to operate the accessories when the vehicle is not running and protects the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) from high-voltage surges.
Did You Know?
Most vehicle breakdowns are due to one of five causes:
Out of gas
Stalled / Engine won’t start
Most of these breakdowns can be avoided through the following measures:
Periodic mechanical checkups, especially when engine stalling, hard starting or other such symptoms are occurring.
Regular tire inspection to spot damage, unusual wear or under-inflation that can lead to a failure.
Seasonal checks and preventive maintenance of the cooling system.
Be sure the gas cap is on tight after filling up to safeguard against condensation in the tank. If moisture in the gas line freezes, the engine can stall.
Also, having a cellular phone or portable CB radio is of great benefit while traveling.
What It Does:
The Starting and Charging System starts the engine, maintains the battery’s charge and provides power to the electrical accessories while the engine is running.
Service & Maintenance:
Inspect the battery cables and posts for good connections and/or signs of corrosion. Clean them if needed.
Check all vehicle lights – including headlamps, turn signals, brake lamps and emergency flashers – to be sure they are operating at full brightness.
Inspect the engine belts regularly. Look for glazing and cracks. Worn belts will affect engine performance.
