My battery went dead on my truck.
When I put it on a chrging unit the battery started to make a "popping" sound almost like the sound of an oil can so I disconnected the charger immediately. What would cause that sound?
I am able to boost the battery from my other car but wont hold a charge. How can I tell if its just a bad battery and not something more serious?

Just replace the battery and don't worry abou the sound. You may have broken a plate when you tried to charge it.
