battery

The past few days my car hasn't been turning over as quickley. My car is about 5 years old and still has the factory battery in it. I have one amp. My guess was that the battery is starting to go...what do you guys think? And what are some good battaries that have a little more ampers than the stock?

try swapping the battery. Get an optima yellow top 34/78 battery. About 160 bucks but its the best. You can get it at your local autozone too.

ANy battery with at least 150 to 170 cold crankin amps aill last 4eva.. Also your car will be more powerful. I have 160 cold crank amps and my car starts at the slightest twist of the key. A ford F350 can run off of a 150 cold crank amps. Imagine what it can do for your celica. WOW eek I paid about $85 @ walmart
