Default Should I replace starter?

Ok, so I noticed that my starter seems to be turning over in a sluggish manner. Especially after a cold night. I saw that the battery was rather old, so I purchased a duralast gold with 700 CCA and popped it in. It had no effect on the starter. It still sounded sluggish to start. I'm not sure if the nox starters are like this, but I remember that when I put a new battery in my monte carlo, it fired up so much quicker and with so much more spunk!

Could be but my first step would be to put a voltmeter on the battery terminals with the engine off and then again with it running just to be sure that the alternator is charging the battery. Those batteries are setup to crank multiple times without a charge.

I believe the alternator is fine. The lights are nice and bright, and there is full power from the blower and such.
