If it rattles, it's bad and needs to be replaced. Inspect it carefully for any burn marks, if it has any replace it. If not, most of the time it's ok.
. A quick check on the compressor is to remove the start relay. You will see 3 pins connect a multi meter set for continuity. You should have continuity between any of the 3 pins. If you do not the compressor is bad. Also check from each pin to a good ground on the cabinet. There should be no continuity if there is the compressor is bad.
