My car has 4200 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi There, It is a bit unclear what you are referring to by it acting funny. Unfortunately, we will need more detail as to the specific symptoms you are experiencing to further diagnose your vehicle. Things to consider when changing the battery are making sure you have all cables connected properly, making sure you have the ground wire connected properly and making sure the alternator is charging the battery properly (i.e. the proper voltage reading is sowing up in your battery gauge).
