Grounds on my /what to i---us

I ask about my lt-1 here a bit ago. Well the grounds were what was wrong, it starts good all the time now.MY question;--- is there a spray -i have grease, [di-lectric] but i would like a spray to use on these grounds to keep them from corroding. Grease works but a spray would get in all the niches on each ground point. First do they make anything like this??And 2 where would i get it.the local auto discount places have no idea as per -expected.
If you have any ideas i'm all ears and thank you

Not necessary, it would be fairly unusual for the corrosion to ever get that bad. Maybe if you were drive the car in salt water is the only one I could think of for what you are worried about. You are not driving in salt water are you?

But if you are so inclined use the grease in between the lug and the frame or whatever sandwich style, the grease will hold off the moisture, even driving in salt waster. LOL

You are definitely right to an extent. I don't drive this car in the winter-hardly ever drive it in the summer.. And the car has been done 11 years, so i guess these just corrode on their own..... NO i need to get something on them, will makem last longer and maybe.
The grease is a dirt catcher,there has to be a spray that does the same thing,i just haven't found it yet -but thank you for the reply bob s


PS-- i have a trickle charger on three of them around the clock ..i noticed on this one that the corrosion [on the battery] was an 1" hi and you couldn't see the post!! there was so much of it sticking up.

This is what I use on my jet skis, I ride them in salt water all the time. I've had zero corrosion problems on the exposed metal 7 plus years now. Sprays on like liquid greese but is much thicker, almost solid when it drys

do you keep the battery disconnected during times when you're not driving it? It's a good idea, just in case you have weak grounds elsewhere. A weak ground anywhere else on the vehicle will cause excessive corroding.

oops just read what you posted again. If you thought they were corroded its because you HAD bad grounds. Should be able to spray or grease them once they're clean and never worry about them again.

It's kinda expensive but a dab will do ya, I spray it on my batt terminals then wipe most of it off, works well for about 4-5 months then I re-apply

The worst part of leaving the computer disconnected,is the next time it is hooked back-up, the car runs bad [up and down almost stalling]till the pc aligns itself with the demands of the engine.I have a 9-volt bat an harness that is meant to be plugged in when you disconnect the main battery, i think this needs to be in and engine electric post. i'm off to that and thank you 50 bow tie
