Q: I can's start car due to dead battery.

asked by on

My car will not start. I think the battery is dead. Also, I think my front tires might have a slow leak ad need air.

The battery is a common failure with your car and most all cars. The battery and charging system would have to be tested. The front tires may have a slow leak or just low on air that could be a normal thing. I would recommend having a mechanic, like the certified ones at YourMechanic, come and check it out for you to see what is causing the problems.
