Remove the battery cables and clean the battery. Get yourself a carbonated soft drink, no do not drink it, and pour it on the battery to neutralize the white powdery substance. Rinse the battery with water, clean the battery terminals, and reconnect. This may help your "crunching" starter motor problems. If it does not, you will probably have to replace the starter. In addition, load test the battery.
