Why is My Car Battery Leaking?

Open car hood

Your vehicle battery is an essential component and your car or SUV can’t run without it. That’s why it’s important to maintain your car battery and check for any leaks or damage, as leaking car battery acid is dangerous.

What Can Cause a Leak?

There are a few different things that can cause your car battery to leak, such as an accident or simply time and age. If your battery is no longer good, you’ll need to get rid of it properly and have it replaced. Keep an eye out for signs of wear or damage:

  • Crack in the battery
  • The cell caps aren’t sealed properly
  • The battery is warped
  • The battery is damaged

If you notice any of these things happening, don’t touch the battery and don’t wait to bring your vehicle into your local Phoenix service center. You’ll want to have it taken care of as soon as possible.

How Do I Dispose of the Damaged Battery?

Once you notice a leak, make sure you don’t come into contact with the fluids coming out of the battery. These liquids are most likely battery acid. You contact the garage you had the battery replaced at previously to properly dispose of the battery for you, or you can contact your local recycling center and they will take care of it.
