one thing good for everybody a ford or a sable car is really made around your ground on your car so this is a tried and tested car ive tried and teste the difference on about 9 ford and sable car from a taurus to and escort

time
about 1 hour + depend of the condition of the wiring here in canada it bad with the winter

tool
a couple of real small flat screwdriver
a battery cleaner cuz it gonna eat the rust and lime and calcium
sand paper a real ruff one so youre gonna be faster to remove the rust
and some electronic cleaner or contact cleaner
and the last one
ags sil-glyde spark plug protector or any die electric paste or compound this is to give the best groud possible
and a couple of really big wire

1- check all your electronic plug use any cleaner and clean all the connector the male and female find anyway possible the one on tha maf and the tps and all of them trust me you will like this when they are clean and dry you take the small flat screwdriver and add a real small amount the die electric paste even the alternator but be carefull unplug batterie and even the batterie connector clean and add the paste

2 check all the ground around the car you have normally 3 near the battery one + pole for the distribution block 1 on the left near the reservoir for the coolant and the best one that for you will really change something is the engine ground
if your ground is badly damaged or all rusted up change it take like 6 same lenght wire of gauge 4 and twist them all up and solder the end with the connector and your original ground the new one must be of equal or bigger and trust me bigger is better and on both end everything must be real clean on the wire the connector and the place where it goe must be all clean and you add paste on all 3 and you re
screw this ground and dont forget to have the clean batterie pole and connector and add the paste

ps for any ground you really clean the connector the screw and the wall where the ground screw itself and you apply the paste on all 3


after this is done it telling you your car is gonna be really really sensible trust me for the time and the money this is one of the best thing to do cuz because of this this is gonna give you a better spark and ive tested it try in the dark before with a spark tester and then redo the test you will see a double size spark


have fun just finish mine and wow

I have yet to try redoing the grounds on any of my cars, but I've heard a lot of people's experiences saying it actually makes a noticeable benefeit, so maybe I'll give it a try soon.

yeah, grounding is really an important part of any electrical circuit. I built a 500 watt rms amp in electronics class this year, and it hummed like a motherfarker. once I got the grounding right, all the hum was gone and I was left with crisp, clean sound.

and, mr canadian, your post was VERY good and informative, but the lack of plurals made it hella hard to read. i dont mean to be mean, but remember: the letter S is your friend ;)

I, for one, was happy enough to get the advice. I can figure it out, as could anyone with an IQ larger than their shoe size. :p

Good advice, and thanks! I need to do this on my SHO, they are REALLY sensitive to bad/weak grounds. They start throwing all kinds of codes that make absolutely no sense....

This will really fix radio hum, dim lights, hard starting, and many come and go things that go wrong with your car.
