Used a spare donner battery and hay presto she fired up and all was fine, thank god its just a simple clean of terminals and charge the battery thats if its not knackered.

So a quick ansewer if there are no cell caps visible the gas produced by charging can still escape via the vent holes on the side of the battery.sometimes they have a little bung in the end of them when you buy them just remove them before fiting to the car.

If you use a good quality charger, that's best for the battery. The ones that Lidl and Aldi do from time to time, with automatic control, are fairly impressive for the price.
