If the battery in your 1994 Toyota 4Runner has crusty white or green build-up and corrosion on the clamps, posts or terminals, you can improve the performance and lifespan of your battery significantly by cleaning it. Your battery is depleted when it is used to start the car, but then recharged when you drive your 4Runner, the corrosion limits the ability for your 4Runner to recharge the battery when driving.

We will also show you a tip for preventing this buildup in the future so the battery in your 4Runner will be optimally charged whenever you drive it!
