You are tugging on the negative battery cable. It bolts to the strut housing and to the side of the engine block.

How does one hook in the clutch pedal spring?


the spring on a clutch pedal is for returning pedal back after taking foot off it ,i dont think it holds the cable anywhere,it will hook on to pedal at top and the other end will hook to a bracket towards driver under dash get a torch lay on your back and you should see where the bracket is it will be directly inline with the pedal

Tip

All cars and trucks,how to properly jump start a car.


Hook up the positive cable Red to the positive cable on the car to be jumped and the car used to jump the battery both cars off. Next on the car with the dead battery hook up the negative cable to the frame of the car if it is a liquid or lead acid battery, next hook up the negative cable to the car that will jump the other dead car. Warning an arc can cause an explosion if there is gas coming from either battery so when hooking up the negative cable be sure to the negative cable on the frame. Next start the car and rev it to about 800 RPMs hold it to 800 RPMS for about 5 minute's before try starting the other car, this will allow the other battery to charge up and will help start the car. If you have small jumper cables like #6 copper give it about ten minutes to charge before try starting or you could damage the alternator of the charging car. once the time has elapsed try starting the other car, push throttle down once while cranking it over and hold pedal half way till it starts, do not crank for more than 30 seconds if it does not start wait for the battery to charge up again to try starting. with low voltage condition if you crank the car and it slows down it can damage the computer by drawing to much amperage caused by low voltage. Remember not to crank for a long period of time as it can damge the starter and or the computer, if voltage drops below 10 volts it can damage the computer of the jumped car.

My negative battery cable came loose on my 96 nissan sentra and i am not sure were to hook it up to


I'm not sure exactly what you mean by where to hook it up?

you have to hook it up, where it came loose from , which is your negative side of battery
the other side goes to engine block
if you look at engine block there is a round spot where it used to be ,cleaner than rest of it,the bolt must have came loose

some models have longer cable(if that is your case)

then in the middle of cable there is another bolt that hold it to some part of the car,( like a hold down) it is not actually connected to to inside the cable

,it just there to hold down to long length of cable so it won't get loose and touch some moving part ( like fan alternator, ETC)

if the car still run just use zip tie, for now till you have time to find the exact location

I have a 1994 dodge stealth and i can't get my hood open because the cable is broke. how can i open my hood?


I have had this problem request on a few GM 'S and usually you can reach the cable end of the latch ,under the hood's bottom side,at the center..Use a length of heavy coathanger wire about a foot long and form a hook on one end and a hand hold on the other Now if you can hook into the lever and pull it in the direction that the cable does,you may open the latch.This is if you see well enough and can get to the latch or the wire hooked into the end of the latch.You may have to experiment a bit with the hooks size to use it effectively.I hope this will help!!!
Have a friend hold down on the hood, to help the latch move easier.
Tell him when to let the hood up once you move the latch.

Clutch cable


On the transmission, where the cable adjusts, loosen the adjuster enough to have enough slack in the cable to remove the hardware holding the cable on the release lever. Then from under the dash, unhook the cable from the clutch pedal. Lift the cable end up off the pedal hook.
