    over heated battery?!?!?

    came home today after taking a friend to get his windows tinted, on the way back i could smell an eggy smell, i thought it was my cat so i didnt really worry, showed sum friend my boost pipe while the engine was running and there was steam cumin from what looked like an over flow pipe on the battery, hense this is where the smell was cumin from ,

    so,
    i phoned vauxhall and they said that it was over charging and i should get it looked at incase it sets on fire!!

    What shall i do? new battery?

    A new battery is a lot cheaper than a new car mate. Get it booked in asap
