BATTERY TERMINAL

The positive terminal does not make a good connection. It can be wiggled with your fingers, and the bolt will not tighten any further. I'm wondering if I can just replace the terminal, or if I need to replace the whole cable. Once it starts, it runs fine, but getting it to connect to start is a pain, and a lot of times we have to jump it. The terminal replacement looks much easier than taking the truck apart to replace the cable, but I don't want to continue having the same issues.

There are new terminals available at most auto parts stores. Make sure its not the battery post though. They are in the $5-8 price range
