So while underneath the car today after reinstalling the power steering pump and wiping off the hoses and underside of the car, I notice that the damn ground cable from the battery is not connected to anything. Where it should be connected to the bolt on the side of the timing cover- the PO must have snapped the bolt off very close to the timing cover and the damn cable is just sitting there,. That explains alot- like when when the fan kicks on or the lights come on the volt gauge drops or when you turn on the lights the temp gauge goes up. Here's the stupid question. Seeing that the bolt is snapped in almost flush with the timing cover, what is a good alternative ground point for this cable. I am thinking about one of the front timing cover bolts as it is within a few inches. I dont want to mess with that bolt and fubar the timing cover up. For illustration purposes Or would the frame rail be a good place. Thank God I added a 4g ground from the block to the 2nd ground behind the battery when I installed the 3g.
