problem #1

Jan 182000

Silverado 4WD

  • miles
The postive side connection leaked acid from the battery causing loss of power to the vehicle. Several times this occurred while trying to turn and gain access to the highway leaving the vehicle without power and sitting in the travel lanes. My mechanic was able to track down the problem and the battery was replaced curing the defect.
