Car Battery Replacement & Maintenance

Car Battery Replacement Services

With battery failure being the number-one cause of vehicle breakdowns, routine battery inspection and maintenance is the best route to the confidence that comes with knowing your battery will start. When it comes to your vehicle, it is critical that your car battery and related electrical components operate flawlessly. Without them, your car won’t function. At Kwik Kar, we have been providing a variety of automotive services to those in the Texas area for over 10 years.

Your car battery installation service is performed by a certified professional who is trained on how to service complex starting and charging systems. We have multiple locations around Texas for your convenience.

How A Car Battery Works

Your car battery may be small, but the power it provides is huge. Your car battery does more than provide the jolt of electricity required to power all of the car’s electrical components. It performs two essential functions:

Gets your car going 

Your car battery delivers voltage to the starter by converting chemical energy into electrical energy. This gives your car the power it needs to start.

Keeps things going 

In addition to delivering the required energy to start your car, the battery also provides a steady stream of voltage (energy) to keep your engine running throughout your drive.

When Should A Car Battery Be Replaced?

On average, a car battery remains reliable for about four years, but there are several factors that can lead to shorter or longer lifespans. Age, under-hood temperatures, vehicle vibrations, and extreme cold and hot climate conditions damage the internal components of a battery, limiting its life expectancy. Even under the most ideal conditions, chemical reactions cause batteries to break down, and your vehicle will likely need a new battery within a few years.

If your car battery is three or more years old, have it tested at your nearest Kwik Kar location. We will let you know if it is time to replace your old car battery. We recommend you have your battery checked every six months.
