1999 Saab 9-5 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 108000 miles

1-My Saab has recently developed a rattle under the hood. It sounds like something came loose.

2-Occasionally, when I first start the motor, smoke comes out of the exhaust and then clears up within a few seconds. This never happened before.

3-I've been hearing a clunking sound when backing up and turning the steering wheel.

What do you think and can you estimate the cost to repair?
