How many cold cranking amps should my battery have?
Just had the battery replaced recently, but it's not starting like it should. AAA came to check the battery and they said it should be around 700 CAA, but the battery I have is only 440. Engine is a 4 cylinder, automatic transmission

You should be fine with 440. I was taught to have as many CCA as the engine has cubic inch.

It calls for 525 with an auto transmission and 430 with a manual transmission. Remember, these are only minimums, you will do beeter to have more reserve.
