    badkuk, dapat sa body ground ng discharged car, not the donor car. But technically it doesn't matter coz the chassis ground for both cars is the whole body itself. Kahit aling area mo pa naground yan, kung mahina ang battery ng donor madidischarge din yan.

    Oh, kung may bulge tapon mo na yan hehe, magleak pa yan o sumabog.

    hmmm... napagusapan na lang din naman ang bulge... my experience sa motolite, nagkakabukol talaga yung battery. even newly bought ones after a few weeks may bukol na agad.

    to badkuk: anong brand ba ng battery yan? a battery bought jan. 2004 is relatively new and should be covered sa warranty...

    unless motolite gold with 24 months warranty, expired na warranty nyan.

    No need to do that, yung positive and negative ng batteries na ang naka-connect sa jumper cables eh, the body is of both cars are connected to the ground ng batter din naman, essentially connected na yan. Pang-start lang naman di ba? ;-)

    Sana itinulak mo na lang para hindi nadischarge yung other battery. Unless if your car is an automatic.

    reminder lang mga pips, kung nadischarge ang battery on a similar scenario (meaning to say walang problema alternator), wag iaasa sa alternator ang pag-full charge sa battery mo lalo na kung "high-drain" (sound set-up, halogen/fog lights, etc) ang oto mo. masisira kaagad ic mo ng alternator. Mas mabuting dalin mo sa mga nag-cha-charge ng battery mo for 6-8 hrs.
