I have a 1000CA and 950 CCA Everstart in my car, i have had 4 different everstarts, but it has a 4 year Free replacement, so there was no cost to me, but still a hassle. I would say go for it, just make sure you get the largest one they have, you cant beat the warrenty for the price

I haven't had any trouble with the best Everstart that wal mart sells...

The Battery EverStart is made by Johnson Controls...

What other batteries do they make?

And L27, that battery is taking a puke... Get the largest battery you can... I have a 950 in my 91...

My 95 has an 800 something or other... I have a 78S I think... For some reason the batteries here have a south designation and supposedly the amperage ratings changed with that... Not 100% on that... But it starts the car better then my 970 amp everstart ever did...( that battery gave me 4 years and lived through 3 junk alternators )

Ah yes, my employer! We make 90% of all the batteries on the market. You name the name plate and it'* most likely ours. AC Delco, DieHard, Everstart, Motorcraft, Optima, ProStart, Duralast, Autocraft. The list goes on and on.

L27....your battery is probably getting close to the end of its life. Pick up a replacement and you'll be good to go. I had to replace mine this past winter for behaviors very similar to yours. I still keep the old one around though as a spare for the garden tractor! LOL.

Mine was a little cheaper, though...one of those fringe benefits from JCI.

This is what I have been trying to tell people and friends of mine for the longest... I have told them that the company JC makes the majority of the batteries out there... Finally got good info on that...lol... I have been told in the past that the Everstart battery is pure junk... It pisses people off when I tell them you get what you pay for... I'd ask them what they bought and they bought the cheapest battery they could get their hands on...

In any event, I agree that L27'* battery is calling on the battery ghost...

And L27, don't worry bud I still have my Cat converter and muffler sitting right here... Funds are a wee bit tight at the moment..

The one in my 91 is a 950...
