souonds like the power supply to the motor is poor

I'd suggest tracing the wiring back to where it joins into the main loom checking for damage or hard sections on the wire also ensure that the connections to the motor are bright and clean

It would also be worth running a fresh wire direct from the battery to the motor to see if its then runnign strongly, to ensure that the earth of the motor is OK
