Slow starting 2006 Impala

Hello!

I have a 2006 Impala 3.5 V6

Recently the car has been struggling to start. Slow turns and finally starts. The battery was replaced in December, and is still testing good. About 2 weeks ago I replaced the alternator, which has improved the starting over time, but still does not start with the same “strength” as usual.

Just today, I found that the remote start will start and then the car stalls/shuts off.

Any ideas what could be causing this?

Thanks!

May check the starter. Parts store will do it for free. Might also check that the cables aren't corroded under the sheathing. All cable ends, terminals, grounds clean and tight?

Will check the starter. Forgot to mention that we cleaned everything of the battery.
Thanks!
