You can attach ground wires anywhere on the body as long as they are connected to a bare spot of metal. Usually, the braided one goes from anywhere on the engine block to anywhere on the body.
Basically, the battery ground wire goes to either the body or engine block. Then you need a path for the ground to the other component so there is a complete circuit.

2003 chevy silverado injector 2 fuse blows when ignition is turned on


You ohmed them but did you check them for continuity to GROUND, to find out if one of them is grounded out ! They normally ground to ecm/pcm not to eng. so check them for short to grd with wire harness unplugged from all injectors and check 1 at a time, If they all show open...no ground then check your power should be pink for chafing or bare short to ground. this will be on Bank 2 you are checking which is the Head that setsfarthest back to firewall. Bank 1 is Head farthest to front towards Radiator.

Were is the ac low port located on 2010 dodge caravan


They did a good job hiding it, but here's where to find it. It is in the engine compartment, on the driver's side (but towards the center), and is along the firewall between the engine and passenger compartments. The two silver-metallic refrigerant lines run horizontal from the passenger side (then turn and penetrate into the passenger compartment. The port is on the low side facing towards the front of the vehicle. You might need to move a hose out of your view, especially if you have the 4L engine (since the "big plastic cover" narrows your field of view.
I hope that helps.

What is the plug wiring order for a 2.8 87 camaro


your firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6, with the #1 cylinder being passenger side, front of engine (fan end), with 3 and 5 towards the firewall. 2-4-6 from front to firewall on drivers side. The #1 spark plug wire should go on the post of the distibutor pointing towards the #1 cylinder from the center of the cap, and then #2 is next in a clockwise motion, with 3, 4, etc. Hope this helps! chevy 2.8, good-day !

When a/c is on passenger side floor gets wet in my 2003 dodge durango


Check the condensation drain and make sure it is clear and allowing the condensation to drain outside the vehicle. This is normally located on the passenger side Engine compartment firewall area at the bottom. It most often looks like a copper tube that has been bent over at 90 degree angle toward the ground.

Leak on the ac in my 2003 mitsubishi galant


There is a drain hole just right (as your driving) of the steering column on the drivers side of the car. You can access this hole from the engine compartment. its right on the firewall. I just had this issue with my 2003 Galant (4 banger) and tried to dislodge the obstruction with a plastic tie, but it would not turn the corner to do the job. <br /> <br /> I then took the carpeting down on the drivers side of the car and found the tube. Its about 1/2 inches in diameter, black and at the lowest point of the plastic drain pan. I drilled a small hole in the tube and stuck a hanger into the hole to dislodge the obstruction. Since I used the plastic tie, I knew the obstruction was towards the cooler. Water started to flow out of the newly drilled hole and through the firewall drain hole. Once the water was drained, I plugged the drilled hole with gasket material. Let it set for a day and it was just like new. <br /> <br /> <br /> It tool about 20 minutes and was easy. Just make sure you drill the hole so that the wire hanger goes the right direction (towards the cooler). <br /> <br /> Good luck.<br /> <br /> Fran<br /> <!-- from fixya rte -->

Trying to find where a ground wire connects to


Wire could go to rear of cylinder head. Going from the firewall to the master cylinder really does not make much sense as that assembly is bolted to the firewall and is grounded there. Generally most systems have multiple ground points, which is why you likely don't have any problems other than finding a home for that wire. On lots of vehicles I've owned, when there was a question about reliable grounding, I ran a 12ga or heavier wire from the battery to engine, firewall, dash and fenders, independent of all factory grounds. It's overkill, but I've never had a ground problem either!
