1999 Ford Mustang V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual 75000 miles
My cars electronics have been acting up lately, here is a rundown-
-3 weeks ago my A/C quit working. However, the fans were still working. It was bearable.
-Just yesterday, the my entire ventilation gave out. The fans quit working. It's summer, and my car interior is getting uncomfortably hot.
-today on the way home from work, I noticed (and smelled) a trail of white smoke coming from underneath my hood. Not good. Pulled over, popped the hood and I noticed that the source of the smoke was coming from my battery (redtop optima). Smoke was coming out of one of the two small openings on the top of the battery.
I waited a couple minutes to let the smoke die down and fortunately I was able to start the car and make it home.
I really think I should buy a new battery. Anyone have any suggestions as to what else I should do?
have the same problem?
