Question about 2005 Acura RL
My warranty expired Wednesday and I had a problem starting the car on Thursday. Oh well... Is it advisable to jump start my RL? If it is, where is the "grounding point" for the negative jumper cable? Does it require taking the plastic around the battery apart? Is an OEM Acura battery necessary?
I need cheap motor mount 2005
please let me know anybody

#1 -- If you follow the correct procedure for jump starting the vehicle using cables and another vehicle, everything should turn out just fine.
#2 -- The grounding point is in most cases (99%) the actual body/frame of the vehicle itself. Most cases connecting the ground cable to something that won't be damaged by the cable teeth like an engine mount, if the engine mount is in an accessable and high position in the engine bay, or possibly to the Strut-suspension mounting bolts usually protruding through the wheel wells.
#3 -- It doesn't require it, but its optional and may or may not be easier to connect the ground that way -- depending on where the battery is mounted.
#4 -- Although it is probably recommended by the Manufacturer, it is not 100% mandatory that you use a battery with an Acura logo on it. An Advance Auto or AutoZone battery should do fine, and as a matter of fact, I'm fairly sure Advance Auto and/or AutoZone will install the battery themselves there in the parking lot.
