I started searching but havent found anyones symptoms to be similiar to mine. About two days ago I was driving like usual and when leaving Home Depot the car just wouldn't start. everything pionted to the battery although there were no indications of it going bad before. So i bought the Optima red and installed it. Being bigger than the stock it was a tight fit and I guess I will need to extend my wires. But the next day when starting the car it would just shut off, and when I cranked it again it started but dipped to the piont of stalling and would catch real quick and continue to idle. Everything else is fine it runs with no problems when just sitting there only on ignition, there are no lights on or anything. I noticed the battery tore the foam on my bypass valve could that be it. Id like to get an idea before taking it in losing my car for a couple days.
