You can buy a battery with as many cca as you like as long as the battery fits your battery box. The cca is how long you can crank motor befor you run out of power If you can get a 700-750 cca battery you will be fine. But you could do with a 450-500cca battery if you want. But I wouldn't go less than that especially if your running the v8

SOURCE: Cold cranking amps

I have a similar situation but it turns out that I am also having an unsolved problem with my 2005 Ford 500 electrical system. Although it could be due to a weak battery I have reason to believe that its root cause that something is wrong with the brake light system. Sometimes when I drive the brake lights stay on and other times they don't. Yesterday, with my foot off the brake pedal (in Park) the brake lights would stay on until I lifted the brake pedal. Today, I can not get it to repeat the symptom nor could an expert auto technican find the problem within several minutes. The battery has been tested and found to have 40% of its life(?) remaining.

SOURCE: What cold cranking amp rating should the battery be ?

It should be enough for that size engine. That is 550 AMPs for 30seconds in 0 degrees. Most cars have batteries twice the power than they need. It helps run the accessories like lights and radio. If your car has trouble starting right away, you may want to get the strongest one that you can fit in there. If it runs fine, then I wouldn't worry about it.

You sate you have the 2.6 liter engine. Is it four or six cylinders? The number of cylinders is also used to determine the correct battery amps. The following information is for the four cylinder engine...You can use any battery with at least 590 cold cranking amps, 620 cold cranking amps, or 720 cold cranking amps. The following is for the six cylinder engine...You can use any battery with at least 590 cold cranking amps, 620 cold cranking amps or 720 cold cranking amps.

What kind of battery do i need for 2002 intrepid 2.7 v6

It will depend on the engine and options. If you go to Walmart or Advance or any of the battery supply they have a book that will give you the choice. I always recommend you go higher on the cold cranking amps, CCA. HIgher will make the alternator and starter work easier.

Hope this helps.

2004 f150 starter wont start

First a couple of questions. 1. How old is the battery or has it been replaced? 2. Do you have a lot of electronics in your vehicle? Most importantly what is the cold cranking amp rating of your battery? The CCA rating is stamped on your battery and for your F150 varies quite a bit in choices if you have added electronics, leave your phone or gps plugged in or your radar detector ect. The colder the temp the more cranking amps you need and the problem is compounded with any extra load or if your battery was replaced with one with less CCAs. Your F150 could probably use a battery with a least 875 CCAs. More if you have lots of electronic stuff. If you live in the far north where the temps are routinely that cold then you should consider a fluid circulation pump known as a block heater that plugs into an ac outlet to keep your engine warmer and prevent freezing and thick oil problems especially if you have to park outside. Good Luck

Won't start when cold

Check the Cold Cranking Amps on the Battery that you have. Normally the Cheaper the Battery the Lower the Cold Cranking Amps. I Recommend getting an "Interstate Battery" . It costs a Little more But has a Warranty and the Cold Cranking Amps that you need. They have never let me Down!
