If the battery is tested and shows good and the cables are ok then you need to replace the starter solenoid it has burnt contacts.

most likely it is coming from the pistons or cam bearings. First check your oil level and make sure it is full. If it is full then you will probably need to rebuild the motor.

If your battery is good, make sure the cables are clean and tight. Do that first because if its not getting a good connection thats exactly what it will act like. If not...your starter solenoid is going bad. If you get someone to try to start it while you tap the starter gently with a hammer, it might try to engage. Just dont even worry about pulling the solenoid off and only changing it out on your old starter, because a weak starter will wear out the solenoid so replace the whole unit.

My 2001 Alero makes a horrible sound when I turn on the car. And when I start driving it makes a clunking sound. It gets worse when I accelerate. Sounds like its coming from the engine. Any ideas

My Alero "clicks" sometimes before it will start. Like it doesn't want to turn over. Could it be the battery or the starter??

Sounds like either a poor connection at the battery, ground, or starter. Could also be a problem with the starter/solenoid itself.
Start by checking the battery connections and the connections to the starter and engine on the large wires. I put in a new battery one time and didn't get one of the connections tight. I would work most of the time and then every now and then just click.
