Start Diagnosing Your Battery Right Now
Before you even come to our shop, there are several things you can do to make sure your car battery is performing well.
Here are some signs to look for:
- Your engine takes longer to start.
- The Check Engine light may appear.
- You can test your battery at home by turning your key in the on position; turning on the highlights, the heater blower motor, and any other electrical accessories; and then tapping the horn. If the headlights dim, it is time to get the battery tested in-shop.
- The battery case has swollen and/or smells like rotten eggs.
A non-performing battery could harm your charging system and even your starter, and puts unnecessary wear on the battery starter alternator.
Avoid Boosting Your Car Batteries in Calgary
Due to the electronics in most newer vehicles, it is not recommended to boost your vehicle’s battery on your own. This task should be performed by a certified technician with the proper equipment and procedures. If you are considering a boost or similar procedure, please give us a call for additional help with car batteries in the Calgary area.
The Life of Your Battery
Generally, a car battery will last 3 to 5 years. You should have your battery inspected on a yearly basis. Certain driving habits and frequent short trips can shorten battery life. For any need concerning car batteries, Calgary residents can turn to Speedy Apollo Auto Service Centres. Contact us today!

Starter Repairs for Calgary Vehicles
If your vehicle will not start, it is common to jump to the conclusion that it may be a battery issue; however, it is also possible that your car is experiencing a problem with its starter. If this is the case, you will need to have your vehicle assessed for starter repairs in Calgary as soon as possible. But, how can you tell if the starter is the problem rather than the battery or another electrical component?
- Grinding noises which suggests that the starter drive gear is worn out
- The engine whines without the engine actually starting when you turn your key
- Smoke or a burning smell is a serious issue that should be addressed
- An oil leak that may have seeped into the starter which can cause a malfunction
Rather than trying to diagnose and fix the problem yourself, it is important to bring your vehicle in to a trusted auto repair shop in Calgary such as Speedy Apollo to have it assessed.

I recently brought my GTI into Speedy Apollo for some welding while I was having my transmission repaired. I just wanted to compliment you on the great welding work you did on my car. I have had no issues with the work completed, and to this day it still holds perfectly. So great job, and if I ever need a mechanic in the future I know exactly where to take my car- To Rick at Speedy Apollo on 58th Ave!
I been having my vehicles serviced here for many years. They are always very professional, providing quotes of repairs required, suggesting options and listen to my concerns. They have never tried to “up-sell” me in anyway, even offering me cost saving advise. I travel from the Crowsnest area of Southern Alberta back to Calgary to have my service done at this location simply because I trust their work! Thanks again Ellery and Sheldon for the 5 Star service!!
My friend Carl had referred me to Speedy Apollo in Bowness as he has had his service done at your shop for 20 years now. He said you were honest, accurate and fair. My car has never run better than since you did the tune-up and fixed my brakes. Your step-by-step explanation took the stress out of a stressful situation for me. Great value for fair dollars, I couldn’t be happier. Thank you David, I’ve found my new shop.
