I posted a thread last week concerning my weird idle problem, and how it only happens sometimes. I think it may be a corroded/rusted/loose ground somewhere. I am aware of the ground below the overflow tank, the two on top of the intake manifold and one on top of the transmission(manual).
Are there any other grounds that I am missing? I tried doing a search in google and on here but no luck.

As long as you have a solid connection from battery to chassis to engine (not necessarily in that specific sequence**) that will resolve 99% of any ground related issues. Use at least #2 wire if overlaying existing good grounds, or #0 or thicker if replacing bad and use a proper crimper for the lugs and heatshrink to prevent premature corrosion. Local hotspots like HID ballast grounds may need individual attention.

** You could do:

battery->chassis and chassis->engine
battery->engine->chassis
etc.
you get the picture...
