2003 9-3 2.0T (BSR tuned)
I was driving my car as normal with cruisecontrol active. When coming to an uphill, I noticed that the car didn't shift down from fifth gear. I tried to manually shift down, and tried to use the "kickdown" feature. None of them worked.
I came to a complete stop...
2006 93 2.0t, Manual 5spd
Hi Folks, my issue is with the gear box. There are no longer any gears to select.
The gear lever feels like a springy stick in a mud puddle. I can push it around but it won't hold into any gear position. I briefly got it in to reverse, but it would slip out never to...
I'm located in Southern Ontario. My beautiful 1997 Saab 9000 CDE is in need of an automatic gearbox. I lost all forward gears this past summer and I really want to get it back on the road.
From service manuals, I believe I can use either the FA43205 or FA43209
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?

Ever since I got the car over a year ago its had a gear whine in 5th - I just assumed it to be general wear since it had around 140k on the clock when I got it.
Recently at 149k miles the whine has suddenly...
Whenever I start my 2006 Saab 9-3 a message appears on the display that says “Gearbox malfunction limited power contact dealer.” And it will drive but not with full power but the weird part to me is when I put it in reverse it seems to reverse just fine full power. It also shifts through prnd...
Hi - I’m Richard, just bought my first Saab (‘97 900S) a week or so ago. First week all good (apart from a few minor and easily-sorted niggles), until ...
Engaging and changing gear has got really horrible over the last day of two, particularly pulling away from standstill (forwards or...
I've got a 9-5 Estate Manual 2.2 TiD and it has developed a concerning knock.
It normally happens in higher gears but I can make it happen in all gears above 1st.
If the car is slowing down and I then accelerate it makes a loud knock when the power goes to the wheels which is louder...
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...

Got a SAAB 9-3 diesel automatic estate Sportswagon registered in 2007.
When it comes to cars I know how to open the door, turn the key and drive! I know the basic maintenance checking the oil and water levels are OK etc but anything else it goes straight over my head.
I have registered as...
Hi all, firstly let me just say a big thank you to everyone on here for the wealth of knowledge i have already found extremely useful.
I recently purchased a 2003 9-3 aero 2.0t with 85k on the clock and an intermittent gearbox fault. Having changed the oil in the box 4 times to get as much old...
Hoping someone can help with a 2005 9-7x. When I was about to back into the driveway, I shifted from Drive to Reverse. The gear shift would switch positions, but the transmission did not. The display on the dashboard showed that no matter how the gear shift moved, the transmission stayed on D...
My '90 900 with 87k miles I bought in August last year has always had a bit of a notchy reluctant feel between first to second. I presumed this was just a Saab 900 thing and as it is my first one. However, I was looking through some of the service history and the gearbox oil was...
I would like to rebuild or refresh a gearbox for my '99 9-3 (base) and want it to be a bit beefier than a stock box (or more reliable anyway, to handle the stresses of increased power in the future).
I've been searching around but either I suck at searching or there's not a whole lot of easily...
'03 Aero Gearbox Warning Light - RPM Drop, Not in Limp Home Mode
As luck would have it, I got all the problems worked out, just to have a new one pop up.
While I was driving today the RPMs dropped slightly and the car felt light I drove over a rough patch of road, like rumble strips...
Firstly Hello All,
Secondly: I obviously tested the top speed in the title on a private road.
So: I have a new to me, Saab 93 Aero convertible, which is very good.
I have retrieved Code P0730 and done the obvious checks:
I have corrected wiring where the PO had pinned out the shaft...

I am looking for a manual transmission for a 97 saab 9000 CSE. Would be willing to pay for shipping or I can pick it up depending on the location.
Driving. It Broke Down. Figured it was a CV Joint so I bought a new one.
Upon installation That Spindle Gear COG Thing on the inside of the Gearbox where the CV joint would go in was really loose. I put My finger in there to center it and it moved completely out of the way like two inside on...
