If it's the original battery it's 9 year old and doesn't owe you a dime. Chances are it has a dead cell. What is the static voltage and cranking voltage? You can show 12v static, but if it drops real low (like 9v) when you crank it, it has a dead cell. Also the lights will go real dim when you crank it with a dead cell.

Not really. Disconnect the battery chassis ground, bleed off the fuel pressure, disconnect the fuel plumbing, remove whatever you have to remove to lift the intake manifold.

I would buy a set of intake manifold gaskets when you buy the starter.

Try checking yuor connection at the + cable hookup under the hood where you would hook to jump. I have seen these have loose connection, with random no starts. Ern
