My partners xterra all of a sudden started making a horrible rattling sound when running. Though a couple times it started up and sounded normal and a few times it didn't start at all, just made a horrible sound, but didn't feel like the engine was turning over. Is it the starter?

It could be the starter getting hung and rattling on the flywheel. The starter is on the passenger side behind the wheel if that is where it is loudest. It is easy to take out, don't even have to put it on jackstands. Any auto parts store can test the starter and many have cores so may want to take it out and with you to the store to save the back and forth.
