Default F25 or GM55 Transmission

How do I tell which 5 speed tranny I have? Preparing to do the output shaft seals.

Look at the tag on the transmission. It will look like this:



It's on the top middle of the transmission... Ron

Since no one posted in the last four weeks, take a picture of your transmission tag and post it. That should answer all the questions... Ron

Then, that's the transmission that you need to seals for. It just has different gear ratios than mine. Nick, at genuinesaab.com has a chart of the ratios... Ron

The problem is, all listings only list a GM55 or a F25, they say nothing about a FMXX

Then, look at www.eeuroparts.com, enter your model, your year, get the OEM part number and order the axle seals. I don't see what the problem is, unless you want to cross reference to cheaper GM seals, which a google search will do... Ron
