How do you check the water level in a car battery?

Use only distilled water to fill the cells. Distilled water can be purchased at most grocery stores. If the electrolyte levels in the cells are low (plates are exposed), fill each cell to just cover the plates. Then use a battery charger to recharge the battery, or just drive the car for a few days in normal service.

Hereof, what level should you fill your car battery up to?

The fluid level in other batteries should be checked at least once a month and topped up if it drops below the correct level - just above the tops of the battery plates . Never top up with tap water, which contains minerals which may damage the battery.

Which acid is used in a car battery?
