Hi Captain - I suggest you get the battery load tested and the alternator output checked. Most battery suppliers will do it for free in the hope of making a sale. Unlike petrol engines diesels need plenty of grunt to get thm going when cold - constantly tryig to run a diesel with a poor battery puts extra strain on the starter motor. A battery is much cheaper than a starter.
