Why Your Car Has Trouble Starting in the Winter and Summer

If you've been behind the wheel of your car when it refused to start in the dead of winter or the height of summer, the culprit may have been your battery. Understanding why your battery has trouble at these times will help you to avoid problems.

The lead acid in your battery reacts to cold and heat in different ways. In the winter, cold temperatures reduce the battery's ability to hold a charge. When you start your car, a cold battery may not have the amount of power necessary to fire. In the summer, high temperatures improve your battery's ability to function, but can cause the acid inside to evaporate, damaging your battery or shortening its lifespan.
