  1. 9-5 Workshop
    I have a 2011 9-5 2.0T auto - this has now happened twice over two years. Everything will be fine and I get in the car and it will not go into gear. It shifts to R or D but the engine will just rev like it’s in neutral. If I let it sit a day or two and get back in it works fine like nothing has...

    Hi All! :) So I was just wondering the other day. Would it be possible to buy an aftermarked automatic gearshift knob and install it to a automatic gear 2002 9-3? And if it is possible...How do you do it?
  3. Parts for Sale/Wanted - North America
    The covering on my handle has peeled and the push button to engage the gears has broken it's clip. I taped it to be functional, but off course I'd like to replace it as soon as possible. If you have one in good cosmetic shape or even have a link to where I could reasonably buy one new, please...
  4. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I can never seem to find one straight answer on what ATF is good to use and what is not. The Saab OEM fluid is $24 a liter on eeuroparts which is crazy. Autohausaz.com sells Aisin ATF (93165147) for $9 a quart which is supposed to meet the AW-1 requirement. Is this okay to use? Aisin 93165147...
  5. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello fellow Saab DYIs Well we don't have a lot of choices do we! My problem is a disintegrated bushing between the transmission end of the shifting cable. It is a ball and socket connection that actuates the lever on the Trans from the shifter, ie : connects the tranny to the shifter via...
  6. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello, I am changing out the three linear solenoids in my 2009 Saab 9-3 2.0t. When replacing the new ones, does the position matter? I'm not talking about the order, I have replaced them one at a time with the correct one, but the difference is mainly in where the connector rests and where the...

  9. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    First post, Excited to see what people have to say. Ok, so I've had my 9-3 Arc for a few months, and I know I'm going to keep this car basically forever.

  10. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I am considering buying a 2005 Saab 93 convertible. The main problem is the automatic gearbox refuses to go into 3rd. Goes into the other gears ok. My question is, could it be the transmission fluid, the solenoids, gearbox reprogramming. Or could it be something worse?
  11. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    During a long drive recently, I encountered a problem with the transmission. I'd been driving for around an hour when I slowed down approaching an intersection. When I reached a speed around 50-40 km/h the car started to stutter and almost stalling itself, so I pulled over and put the car in...
  12. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi, I've just bought my second Saab. A 2002 9-3 convertible 2.0t at a bargain price. The catch is that the gearbox doesn't function. Symptoms: Gear leaver moves freely. It does park. When they select a gear it just sits in neutral. In the Instrument panel the lights light up at the selected...
  13. 9-5 Workshop
    So I was in the process of replacing my subframe bushings this week (what a job!) and I noticed that my rear engine mount is just about broken in half! The rubber outer cover is completely cracked open and there's a huge amount of play. This definitely needs replacing, and was probably the main...

  17. 99 & 90 Workshop
    Hello, I've found and read the Auto to Manual Conversion PDF doc that's available on the C900 tech forum for performing the swap on a C900 (obviously :roll:). While I understand the fundamentals would be the same to do the swap on a 99, is it as much of a bolt on conversion on the 99 than on...
  18. 9000 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    I was interested in knowing what options are there for replacing an automatic transmission in a 9000 CSE. I know that a number of folks have taken on the auto to manual conversion. I was wondering if there are is a compatible option that could take the 4 speed to a 5,6 or even 7 speed auto or...
