  2. Has anyone upgraded their battery & chassis ground on?

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 CR-V
    Hey, I've noticed that my 1997 EX starts really slow but the battery is at 13.8 and the alternator is no less. I've noticed the battery ground rusting (on the frame itself) and paint looks to be under it and the engine block ground is even worse, its factory is on the top front end bar and that...
  3. Starter question (Japanese chassis)
