The 1/0 black battery cable MUST be connected solidly...as this supplies ALL the grounds for the whole vehicle...wipers...fuel pump...ignition...yes, if given faulty ground the spark will reduce voltage and be weakened...heated 02 sensors will not heat and give proper data....yes, the main ground...take the bolt off, wirebrush all corrosion off the main ground...wirebrush the main ground and put a fresh non-corroded bolt to put them together...with a fresh battery your ignition will reach full potential~

you might just check your fuel pressure regulator to be sure that it still is operational...the vacuum hose is not cracked and crumbled and the diaphragm has not been eaten away by benzene~
