Ground wires

30

Asked by Feb 23, 2016 at 08:14 AM about the 1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 2.0

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Where's the ground wire that goes from the battery
to the motor at. Is it a plug of a bolt. My car acts
like the alternator is bad but Its not. Can having a
bunch of oil and black stuff on it completely stop
my car from starting and staying running.

Yes that can effect the connection. At least that's where I would start. It's a bolt thru a ring lug on end of cable. View your other post for more details.
