Nothing is quite like trying to leave in the morning only to discover that your car won't start. At Kia of West Nyack, we want you to know that both extreme hot and extreme cold can impact your car battery. Here is what you should look out for in West Nyack, NY.

Battery fluid can begin to evaporate underneath the hood of your car in the heat. The incredibly hot temperatures can also speed up corrosion, which can lead to a variety of mechanical problems. In reality, heat can be harder on your battery than the cold.

That is not to say that extreme cold does not hold any risks, however. The capacity of the battery is reduced by cold temperatures, and it will recharge more slowly while you are driving. The oil is also thicker, which makes it even harder for your battery to turn over your car's engine.
