  1. Addressing ATF leak with auto box in 8V turbo sedan

    C900 Workshop
    Might be relocating my 81 8V turbo sedan soon. It's been out of rego and stored in someone's shed since mid-2014 and has been leaking ATF for a while. I never addressed it since my situation required the car to be dropped out of rego when unemployed. I know the engine still runs, but if it's...
  2. ATF change on 06 9-5: what's the drain bolt washer size?

    9-5 Workshop
    Before I go about jacking up the 06 9-5 to change the ATF fluid...I searched on here and elsewhere and am getting conflicting info, likely because both gens talk in the same threads... On the 06 9-5, is the drain plug washer 24mm OD like the older 9-5s? What about ID? Is it an aluminum washer...
  3. Replacing oil/fluid lost with inner CV boot renewal

    9-5 Workshop
    I just replaced the inner CV boot on my 2000 95 2L auto. When I pulled the shaft out, a fair quantity of oil came rushing out (did not expect this). How can I replace this and where do I fill this? It didn't look like it was ATF fluid, but maybe it was just old (replaced that since). Is there a...

  5. ATF fluid change

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I got my 04 ARC about 3 weeks ago and I have been slowly going over all of the general maintenance during any free time I can get during the week. I finally got around to putting the car up on ramps and checking the dip stick on the A/T and the fluid has a medium brown tint to it and is not at...
  6. Too late for ATF change?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I now own a 2006 9-3 2.0T with 137k miles. The auto transmission fluid has never been changed. There are no problems with shifting. Is it too late to change the fluid now? I have heard in the past that it is not recommended to touch the fluid if it has gone past a certain point or you will cause...
  7. ATF Filter?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've got a 2006 9-3 2.0t that needs its transmission fluid changed. I tried doing a search on the forum, but don't get any good results. Does this model have a ATF filter? I can't seem to find any information saying that it does. What's the best way to go about changing the fluid? Is just doing...
