Question about 2005 Ford Five Hundred
I'm pretty sure I need a new battery, I'm looking to see how many cold cranking amps I need, minimum and maximum, what is recommended.
The battery in our 2005 Ford Five Hundred shows 600 CCA.
If you buy a larger battery it will cost more in the purchase
and more to transport because it will be heavier.
If you buy less then (as the battery ages and drops in its
CCA value) you will reach the minimum CCA value (required
to start the engine) sooner and need to purchase a battery
If I were in a pinch and couldn't find one that was
on sale, then I would buy the one that is the lowest price
that met my 600 CCA minimum value.
If I were stranded
and it were summer time I would settle for less and carry
jumper cables in my trunk for when winter arrived.

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
