Hey guys well car started acting up again today, So i went to unhook the battery to restart the cars computer and as I was taking off one of the wires I was like fuuuck that's hot. Right after that i saw smoke coming out the side of it. DAMMIT. Obviously the battery got ****ed and had to get a new one. Apparently there was a short inside the battery. Now my question is what could have caused this to happen. I'm thinking its another problem thats being added to the long list of problems comming from something in my electrical. For those who don't know, My power steering light will come on and my power steering will go in and out, tranny will shift really hard, rpms will dip below 500 when i come to a stop, while driving all the gauges will jump up and down, also here reacently it'll make the catalytic converter stop working and we can smell real by fumes.
Heres a vid of the gauges
