Why should distilled water rather than acid be added to the storage battery in automobile?
Do you have any sulfuric acid on hand? There is enough acid already in the battery. Just add distilled water.
It's typically either a discharged battery or a poor battery connection. Batteries are only an electrical storage device. If the alternator isn't keeping the battery adequately charged you could have the problem you describe. But rather than running right out and replacing the battery, first charge it and see if it will hold a charge overnight. Sometimes, if something is left on inside the car it will run the battery down sufficiently to cause what…
Distilled (desalinated) water is fresh water and is safe to drink. The sea water has been boiled (killing bacteria) and the water vapour (steam) condensed back to water. You may find that the water is actually rather tasteless. This is because you are to used to drinking tap water, to which chlorine and other chemicals have been added, which are not in the distilled water.
i am an automobile engineer... if u really interested and passionate about this particular field..... my suggestion and experience tells you to enter in a practical knowledge rather then study m.tech because automobile is all about practical work and more and more experience is the only way to get shine yourself and lead your future on a sky........ gud luck :-)
Is it always good to get a battery with the highest cold cranking amps rather than one that is recommended in the manual?
Battery Idiot Light If by battery light you mean the instrument panel charging system warning light, then that means that more electricity is flowing out of the battery than is being put into it. The charging system is not putting out as much electricity as the electrical system is using. In other words, the battery is being "drained" rather than being charged.
Any car charger will do. I recommend that you use a trickle charger rather than a jump charger. Also, look into a Battery Tender which will not only charge your battery at a proper pace, but you can leave it plugged in an the Battery Tender will maintain your battery for you so that it never becomes low again.
How does an alternator cause a negative draw on the battery rather than charging it It's a 90 Buick LeSabre 3.8. It produces an output charge during idle but draws on the battery in high rpm driving?
Distilled water - water that is recovered (condensed) overhead of a boiling source of water generally at low pressure (near atmospheric)esentially nearly all minerals remain behind in the pot and only very pure water goes overhead. double distilled water- due to the fact that the boiling water can have a very small amount of carry-over of the water contained in the boiling pot in a very fine mist rather than a pure water gas…
Chevrolet and GMC trucks with diesel motors have a lot of electrical draw; glowplugs and such; that the standard battery is insufficient. Rather than develop a speciality monster battery, GM chose to install two batteries in parallel - doubling the capacity. They did the same in the diesel Oldsmobiles. People with gas motor trucks who want extra reserve capacity truck, like for a winch, killer stereo or just bragging rights; will install the extra battery…
There are a few anecdotal accounts, but I could find no evidence of systematic problems with the Everex StepNote battery. From what i can gather this battery has quite a few problems it dies rather fast and can only have a short charge. More over the battery is drained while the laptop is closed wich "having a battery with 0% power" can shorten its life smal.
A 6v motor might not run at all on a 4.5v battery. Whether or not it does, it's likely to discharge the battery rather rapidly. A series resistor will help the battery last longer, but will make it even less likely that the motor will run at all. You're better off taking some time to find either a 4.5v motor or a 6v battery.
