Question

Has anyone encountered a loud ticking motor at just 72,oook? I find it very odd that a motor with such low miles would react as if it had double the miles..

It is fairly annoying pulling up to someone and them thinking my car is just well.. a p.o.s. SAAB

Lots of things can cause clattering. Low oil pressure due to sludge, bad pulleys or tensioner on serpentine belt, bad timing chain/gears/tensioner all come to mind.

Just had a new serpentine belt put in. Possibly need an oil change?

*EDIT*

Also. anyone ever had any trouble with motor mounts on these vehicles? Seems as when I accelerate hard theres a pretty decent jolt.. also when I let off the gas hard for some reason

I would be very suspicious that whoever did your accessory belt didn't properly re-install the right side motor mount to the engine. Loose or missing fasteners come to mind.
