Your check engine light may be on. This light can be on for a variety of reasons. You should see a mechanic if the check engine light is on.

You may notice a bad smell coming from the hood of your car. When a battery gets old, it tends to leak. That is why there is a rotten egg smell. You should look at the battery case. Extreme hot or cold can change the shape of your battery.
