Overcharging a Car Battery?

Answer

A car battery will normally not overcharge, unless you have something else wrong with the engine. For example, a bad voltage regulator will allow the battery to take on more charge than it can handle. When this happens, the battery will start to leak battery acid and its casing may begin to visibly bulge out on top.
