My battery is dying on me right now and I'm trying to find a replacement. I was at Sears the other day after I had one of my tires replaced and they told me my car had a special battery that they didn't carry. He also said a few other cars around my year have the same type. I was wondering if this were true, and where could I find a place that sells mine besides the dealer? I want to start driving my car again!

Dealer parts aren't expensive though? Write down the values that are on the label (from old battery) and then they should have to know which battery you need.

there is "no" special battery you need. the only limitation is the size of the battery itself. check to see the size of your battery and get a replacement. my honest opinion is to go with an interstate battery or if you plan on doing more to your car (like say a stereo upgrade) check out Optima batteries.

there is an FAQ on batteries and another on how to do it yourself in the FAQ forum under the maintainace sub-forum

good luck

A battery is a battery. Be sure it's the same Amp.

Go to Kragen auto store...they sell a "nascar" pro battery for your car. It's awesome. I've had it for a long time and it fires up quickly from below zero temps to hot as hell summers!
