New Battery in Car..World of Difference!

Hey Guys,

Ive just had a new 520CCA battery installed into my AU, and wow what a difference! It idles so much smoother, and feels like it has so much more power!. Who'd have thought a battery would have made such a difference!.
The battery the guy pulled out had no brand markings what soever on it, and appears to have lasted only 2 years. Ahh well, you get what you pay for!

Re: New Battery in Car..World of Difference!

You will find the reason it is running different/better is because you had the battery disconnected when it was changed, the ecu has lost it's Keep Alive Memory, therefore is relearning all the engine parameters again.
