I am in need of a new battery for my GenIII duratec but I don't know the size that I need or anything else for that matter about it, I was hoping that you guys could guide me in the right direction.

just take it out and take it with you to an auto parts. Most people who work at auto parts stores will know the size you need. When i went auto zone to buy mine i pick up the wrong one. The guy checks his computer database and tells me what i need. just ask someone where you plan on buying it.
I bought mine at costco. Problem is they don't offer an exact replacement for a GenIII so I had to modify the cover and flip the cables. But I got like 40 more cranking amps and they are the same dimensions.
Go to Wal-Mart or and Get an Everstart or Everstart Maxx, or go to Sears and Get a Diehard Series. They last a long time and both are made by Johnson Controls.

You can also get a larger CCA size with both of them.
just go to wal mart ... they can match ya up, and dispose of the old one i believe... and on another note, since its winter out, if it gets cold by you very often, a lot of cranking amps can help start a car in the winter!

Thanks for the advice guys.
They do make an exact replacement for the gen 3 it's called an Interstate MT-58R

the "R" stands for reversed terminals.
