It Lives!

With about an hour of work (cleaning corrosion and neutralizing battery acid, stripping battery cables, putting new cable terminals on), the Kia now has a new Sears DieHard Gold battery and starts up fine (after an initial rough running for a couple of minutes, as it hadn’t been started in about five months).

Tomorrow morning I put some fresh gas in, and take it down to Firestone to have new brakes, rotors, and tires put on, as well as an oil change and a fuel system cleaning.
