Help! Battery tipped over yesterday, discovered today :(
I went out to my garage today and popped the hood. Unfortunately, my new battery flipped over yesterday when wheeling. Of course it leaked quite a bit overnight. Mostly it leaked through to the cardboard on the floor, but did manage to soak the left front springs. I took off the neg. lead immediately and cleaned up a bit with a shop rag. Should I be concerned about anything else and is the battery shot now or can I just add some distilled water?
i think its a hydrometer you want to check your battery with, here we can take it to napa and they will check it and they will put the proper acid/water, pretty cheap too.
Make up a solution of baking soda and water in a large bucket. Use this to rinse off anywhere the battery acid may have gotten into, when it spilled. It will neutralize the acid. Let it sit for a couple minutes, then rinse with a hose. Battery hold downs are installed so this doesn't happen.
