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

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.

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.
