Battery Testing and Replacement Services

Battery Testing and Replacement Services Our country started to emerge from a global health crisis in recent months, which took a toll on its motor vehicle fleet, because so many people were driving so much less than they had been before. The rate of driving began picking up again when more people returned to work and when many more people took to the road. However, with the recent increase in infection, it is unfortunately possible that our rate of driving will decrease once again. This disruption can have an impact on your vehicle, and Clark Automotive is equipped to help you get your vehicle back into optimal running shape.

Importance of Testing your Car’s Battery

A well-made machine works best when it is used and also properly maintained. When it sits idly, it can lose efficiency and even break down altogether. If you have ever been away from your vehicle—while on vacation, for instance—for several weeks, the first time you attempt to start it, it may struggle to turn over. Though the science behind the issue is more complicated, this occurs in part because the vehicle’s battery has suffered a loss of efficiency during the period of idleness.

Part of our routine maintenance is checking your car battery. Our team can test your battery and help you determine if it needs to be replaced. Replacing a battery is not complicated, though it does require attention to the proper procedures associated with it. Your vehicle’s battery is a simple component that performs many vital, essential, and important functions. It is therefore important for you to be able to trust that your battery is in good working order.

As recently as ten or fifteen years ago, it was far easier to kill a battery by accidentally leaving the vehicle’s lights on, leaving a door ajar, or otherwise draining it without being aware that you were doing so. Newer models, equipped with various technology that set off alarms and computerized voices to tell us we are endangering the health of the battery, prevent dead batteries better than ever before. But virtually no new vehicle has a device that will show you the current strength of your battery. It can therefore gradually decline, leaving you in danger of discovering a dead battery. This often happens at an inconvenient time.

There is one way to provide added assurance that that never happens—bring your car into Clark Automotive for all your battery needs. If you would like more information, contact us at (763) 784-7944 to schedule an appointment.

Trusted Minnesota Auto Shop

We consider ourselves to be very much like you—we work hard for what we have, and we want it to last. A car or a truck is a significant investment, and you should feel confident that it will keep you safe, get you to and from your destinations safely, and be serviced by a professional auto mechanic who cares about the cost of repairing your vehicle. At Clark Automotive, we work hard to be a provider of automotive maintenance you can count on.
Well-maintained cars are less likely to develop larger problems, especially when you develop a professional relationship with a company like Clark Automotive. We make an investment in our customers, and that is much easier to do when we work on your vehicle(s) more frequently. Typically, a car with increasing mileage will need certain kinds of services. The services we offer more often to such vehicles are listed below:

  • Oil and filter changes: All cars need oil changes, though some will need them more frequently than others. If you do a lot of highway driving, your oil will last longer than if most of your driving occurs in town. We offer this service for all vehicles requiring every type of oil and filter. We service domestic and import vehicles, and vehicles that use regular oil and vehicles that require synthetic oil.
  • Tires. Your tires are in constant contact with the road. They are under constant stress and, because of that, they need to be checked periodically for undue wear and tear.
  • Battery maintenance. No battery lasts forever, so it will need to be changed before it fails altogether. We can measure the current strength of your battery and replace it with ease if it is needed.
  • Suspension and Alignment. Every bump in the road and every pothole you hit while driving can cause your wheels to become misaligned and do damage to the suspension system. Proper alignment allows your tires to wear properly and a suspension system that is in good working order means that your car will remain in proper contact with the road.
