    Car cranking real slow, sometimes doesn't start

    Battery reads 12.8V off (fine)
    Alternator reads 14.6V while running(I think fine?)

    Car died at a servo and a jump got it running instantly, mate reckons it is the starter but how does that make sense if the jump got it going?

    I am pretty lost:'(

    Someone suggested terminals, gave them all a real good clean (main ground, battery terminals), readings were more or less the same after the clean and it failed to start, starter terminals?

    EDIT/UPDATE: It is the starter the jump must have been a fluke as I tried jumping it again and no luck.
