How do i change the positive battery cable and how do i get them?! oh one thing where do i connect the end of the negative battery cable to?!because i have it connected to engine and i read that it spouse...


Would like to know what size of motor and what kind of car but the answer would still be the same.

First, you can get the battery cables from any parts store.

Second, the black/ground wire goes from the battery post (the - negative side) and the other end screws/bolts to the frame of your car or the grounding point like on a Dodge Stratus.

Third, the red/positive wire connects to the battery post (the + positive side) and the other end goes down to your STARTER not the alternator.

The alternator has a wire that attaches to it that is separate that receives power.

Hope this helps!

Truck died while driving


somewhere you have a broken main wire or cable that is powered from your battery. Check the positive lead off your battery, does it connect to a separate terminal ? it could be broken or loose at that point.

My 2001 grand cherokee is sluggish to start almost likes ites a dead battery? once its starts its fine. It doesnt matter if its cold or hot it always starts likes this.


If you are sure the battery is solid, remove the battery clamps (always negative first), clean both terminals and while they are off, follow the positive (red) cable to the solenoid or starter, remove and clean that and finally, trace the other end of the negative cable which will lead to either the block or a chassis point and clean that too.
When putting cables back in place, leave the negative battery clamp until last.
If the problem persists, either the solenoid (if separate) needs replacement or, if integrated with the starter, it may need replacement.
Starters draw a huge amount of current from 100-200 amperes and any poor contact will cause the reluctant starting you have.

How do you replace Fuel Filter on a 2006 5.4Ltr. Ford F150?


  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable and relieve the fuel system pressure.
    1. Disconnect the fuel lines from the fuel filter. Have a drain pan handy to catch any residual fuel once the lines are separated. On newer models, disconnect the fuel lines from the filter as follows:
    1. Disconnect the safety clip from the male hose.
    2. Install and push the fuel line disconnect tool into the female fitting.
    3. Separate the male and female fittings.
    4. Inspect the fuel lines for any damage after the fuel is finished draining.

    1. Remove the fuel filter from the bracket and the retainer, if equipped. Note the direction of the flow arrow so the replacement filter can be installed correctly.
    To install:
    1. Position the fuel filter into the mounting bracket with the flow arrow pointing in the correct direction.
    2. Install the fuel lines to the fuel filter. On newer models, align and push the male tube into the female fitting until a click is heard. Pull on the fitting to ensure that it is fully engaged, then install the safety clip.
    3. Lower the vehicle to the ground.
    4. Re-install neg. batt. cable to battery.

    I have replaced all disc pads. How do I adjust or set the e-brake?Are there separate pads for the e-brake?


    There are separate shoes for the e-brake. But they don't wear out like normal brakes. You never use them when the car is moving. The adj should be on a cable in the rear, If no adj, then you can buy these cable adjustment things that put pressure on the cable to shorten it. Hope this helps.

    My 1998 Jimmy won't start. Just got a new starter. My battery is drain, when i use the jumper cables it still won't turn over.


    with a new starter, this sounds like a bad battery cable or terminal end. the easier way to figure this out w/out checking the voltage drop across a whole battery cable is to affix the jumper cables strategically to find the bad one. Put jumper (+) on batt (+) and jumper (-) directly onto a piece of unpainted engine metal and not in the way of moving parts. If it starts this way then you've got a bad ground cable. If it didn't start, put jumper (+) on the hot post of the starter solenoid (there are 2 posts, only touch the one w/ the fatter cable going to it) or on a remote jump point if equipped, and put jumper (-) to batt (-). If it now starts you need a positive battery cable, or just a battery-to-starter cable (if separate)

    How do you remove the power window motor on a 2003 avalanche


    AFTER REMOVING THE DOOR PANEL, REMOVE THE WINDOW REGULATOR. LOOK AT THE CABLES ON THE REGULATOR, THEY TEND TO SHRED AND BALL UP IN THE PULLEYS. IF THIS IS OK, REMOVE THE 3 BOLTS HOLDING THE MOTOR ONTO THE REGULATOR. HOLD THE MOTOR TIGHTLY AGAINST THE REGULATOR UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO REMOVE IT, THERE IS A SPOOL UNDER THE MOTOR THAT WILL UNWIND QUICKLY IF YOU JUST PULL ON THE MOTOR. YOU WILL BE REPLACING THE WHOLE ASSEMBLY AT THAT POINT. SO CAREFULLY SEPARATE THE MOTOR FROM THE SPOOL HOLDING DOWN ON THE SPOOL.
