It is a loop - near the center of the engine - that the factory hooks a hoist to to lower the engine into place... but it can be any bare metal under the hood.

My 2002s needs a jump. Owner manual says connect jump cable to negative terminal of dead battery. I thought you were to connect to ground area!!!

The negative cable is the ground area. If you follow the negative cable to the end it will either be connected to the frame or the engine block. It is the source of ground for the battery.

I need instructions on how to jump start a car (mainly because i always forget which vehicle needs to have both cables connected to both batt. posts and which needs to have one on batt. post and the other...

Start with positive cable on the positive post of donor car (the one giving a jump). Other end on positive post of donee car (the one getting the jump). Now negative cable on battery post of donor car, and other end of negative cable on a metal piece of the donee car-the one getting jumped.

Dead battery on a 2005 Lincoln towncar

You should be able to jump start it. Before connecting cables make sure the ignition is off on both vehicles also do not let the black and red jumper cable clamps touch . When connecting cables connect the red cable to the good batterys positive terminal first. Next connect the other end of the red cable to the positive post of the dead battery. Third connect the black cable to the good batteries negative terminal. Last connect the other end of the black cable to a good ground on the dead car, this can be a nut or bolt or part of the frame. Start the engine of the good car, rev the engine slightly then try to start the good car. Remove the cables in reverse order from installing them.

I'm just looking to see if it possible to use an

Sure! It is always possible for one vehicle to jump-start another vehicle. However, EXTREME CAUTION should be used and jump starting techniques should be followed carefully. Otherwise severe vehicle damage can occur. Here is the way to do it:

1. Connect the jumper cables to the good vehicle. (the one that is doing the jumping)
Make absolutely certain that he RED cable is connected to the POSITIVE battery post (the larger post on all top-terminal batteries, also marked with a "+") The BLACK cable then connects to the NEGATIVE battery post (smaller post marked with a "-").

2. Connect the other RED cable end to the POSITIVE post on the "dead" vehicle
3. Connect the other BLACK cable end to a metal part of the engine AWAY from the battery. (This is for safety to prevent sparking or arcing from causing the battery to explode.)
4. Run the engine on the good vehicle for 3 or 4 minutes to allow the dead battery to partially charge. (skiping this step can cause your charging system to overload and can cause damage to your vehicle including burning the alternator up.)
5. Attempt to start the dead vehicle. If is starts right up, then there is no problem. If it does not start immediately, I recommend getting some professional help with the situation because there is a problem that could possibly damage your vehicle if you continue to try to jump the dead vehicle.

Although its had a new battery and alternator it will not start without jump starting off another car

hi from uk if you are connecting jump leads the correct way ? ie positive from doner battery? to positive on your battery ? then the negative from doner battery must be connected to the engine of your car at a suitable point/earth (not to the negative battery terminal) ? if your car starts ok then try this remove jump leads from your battery then just connect a jump lead from your negative /eart terminal and the other end to the engine if car starts with this ? then your problem is the vehicles earth lead from battery is either loose/broken or corroded? check its connections at battery and the point it connects to engine usually with a bolt that connects clutch housing to rear of engine ? on most cars in fact may i suggest you checkall other earth cables/leads too these are thinner and connect at car body and to engine these are common faults that affect the various sensors for engine half the time due to poor or corroded connections to body hope this helps ?

How to jump start it

To jump start any car, you will need to have either a portable jump starter (that look like the ones found here: or have jumper leads which look like alligator clips.

To use either option, attach one side of the jumper cables to to your battery, then attach the other end to another car battery (or in the case of the portable jump starter, it will be already connected with the unit).

Ensure the correct color cable is attached to the correct battery terminal (metal point on battery), i.e. red to red, black to black.

Caution: Car batteries have a high amperage and can lead to electrocution if you touch both metal points on the battery. Always be careful when doing so and if unsure, do not attempt to do so without assistance from a competent individual.

Dead Battery

You will need to get to the battery inorder to do this. If you can't, because the lock is not functioning, you will need to call a locksmith and have the lock replaced. Do this properly, if you don't you could cause more damage than just a dead battery.
