Just bought 1994 CDE Auto. 45,000 miles. After a few miles, brief whine when changes from 2 to 3 while in drive. Overdrive seems OK. Any ideas before taking to garage. Nearest dealer 200mls away! Not many saabs in New Zealand!
Gareth...I get this "whine" too,especialy when slowing down,but nothing seems wrong anywhere so I just kinds accept it.
I did change the oil/filter (not because of that,just routine),but like I say I just accept it.Maybe someone will write in saying otherwise I don't know.
Oh,mine is a 91' 9000 2.3 with 114k and a FSH.
Hi Gareth :D
Whereabouts in the country are you? Auto CD/CDEs are the most common 9000 here; lots are brought in from o/seas.
You have a ZF transmission I believe. It might just be that you need a clean and adjust, especially if it has come in from Asia - look for a local auto transmission place that services ZFs. If more work is needed then it can get very expensive. :cry: The dealer would probably just send it off to a specialist anyway so I'm not sure I'd bother.
I might be able to recommend someone if you're nearby...
