Yes...a broken ground strap will cause it to run like sh##. Had a buddy tear half his engine apart trying to fix would start, backfire, pop, stall and then start right up and do the same thing. I went out to help him and found the ground wire from engine to frame broken...ran a jumper cable from the engine to the frame and it started right up and ran great. Easiest way to check it.
