sounds like you're combing and mixing the tricks of adding crushed aspirin to the battery electrolyte to boost it, and using coke to remove rust from metal.

i've never tried the asprin IN the battery trick, but i've heard it works from some people who have tried it.

highly skeptical that coke or wine on the terminal will do anything.
