am going to suggest that the 12.5 volts at 30 amps is NOT making it to the starter, SO ground cables, they will go bad just from ambient conditions~ 5 years might be OLD with the new tin/antimony design (my father's contribution)~ get a New battery and New cables installed, you will be fine then~


may suspect the water pump is loose and rubbing on the guard~ check that~
