1997 Chevrolet Venture Q&A

1997 Chevrolet Venture Question: Can heat/outside temprature have an effect on a car battery?

I can start my vehicle early in the morning before the temprature rises with no problem but as soon as the temprature gets hot it won't start. The cells are full. -
Answer 1
As in drag racing when cars temperatures get really high they have problems starting. In a battery excessive heat causes corrosion and in turn hard starting = shortening life span of the battery. I forgot to add it can also be an intermittent problem with the main relay, starter, or fuel pump. -
