The largest one with the correct terminal type at Wal-Mart that will fit in the available space. Use a tape measure or other measuring device to determine available space then measure the likely batteries at Wal-Mart to see which will fit in the available space. Careful with vertical. Don't want the hood to contact the terminals. That's what I did with my Kia Spectra.

I meant what's the battery size number. Hmmm. On the other hand, I wonder if it's just displayed right on the outside of the DieHard that's in there already. I'll go take a look. Doh!

24F or 124R. Although I suppose you have one by now.

Hello again, HT. Naw. Still studying and scratching my head. See, the thing is that a previous owner threw me a curve ball: he substituted a battery from a different group: size 35!
When you buy a used car, do you think to check if the battery is the correct size? The size 35 actually has worked fine. But when you check on line, the store sites won't usually search on battery size but lock you in to a routine that searches by the vehicle. Which gave me a different battery number and some confusion.
And that's why I asked here. The sites are all listing the 124, not the 24F. And I'm finding that there's no advantage whatsoever for using a size 35 like I have now.
In general, - the 35 is more expensive. - the 35 is a lower-capacity battery.
Thank you!
Richard
