when a battery has an internal short , it builds up Hydrogen gas from the acid , and when i hit the key to ask for juice it sparked inside and BOOM !!

That happened in my auto-tech class in high school. The battery was on an engine stand and two guys were standing next to it when it blew. It was loud! One of the guys that was standing next to it brought back the jeans he was wearing that day. They were all full of holes from the acid. Good example of why we weren't allowed to wear shorts in class. The next week we had all new batteries.

Your lucky....

a battery the size of ours can produce enough Hydrogen to do MASSIVE damage to the car.


Wash your engine bay down with water and baking soda, then rinse to get rid of the baking soda.
