Buying a car battery without knowing the cylanders

Asked by Aug 12, 2019 at 07:46 PM about the 2009 Hyundai Sonata

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I have a friend who lives hours and hours away
from me and needs to get to my place. His battery
died in his 2009 Hyundai Sonata and fir some
reason he can't figure out how many cylanders his
car has. I just need to keep his a cheap Walmart
battery to get it started and on it's way and we'll
get a better one when I can afford it. My question
is how do I know what kind to send to him if I dont
know the cylanders and any suggestions on the
Walmart battery? Thank you

Just buy the best battery you can get. No need to know how many Cylinders the engine has.

Have him give you the eighth character of the VIN. That will give you the engine size. The person at the auto parts store will be able to determine which engine you have. Hope that helps! Jim
