Engine Is Slow to Start

Enlarged Battery Case
The casing around you battery can well when your battery heats up a lot. This indicates that your battery is overheating, which decreases its overall life span. But even worse, if left untreated, this overheating and swelling could seriously damage to other crucial parts of your vehicle.
Battery overcharging creates visible corrosion around the terminals and battery case. Sulfuric fumes released because of the overcharging create this corrosion, and once these fumes interact with the lead from your battery posts, white powder begins to form. This white powder corrosion is a non-conductive inhibitor, making it hard for your vehicle to start up. Treatment for minor corrosion isn’t difficult, but ignoring the problem means the corrosion will spread, causing you to have to buy a new battery.
