3) Is the battery low on fluid? The fluid levels should not be below the energy conductor. When this happens you are playing Russian Roulette with your car. Have it checked and tested now.

4) The battery case could also be causing problems if it overheats.  this could limit the life of your battery.  

5) A battery leak is another indication that something is wrong. This can cause issues with the connections and lead to corrosion.  This will prohibit the flow of energy needed to start your car.
