  1. C900 Workshop
    Thank you everyone in advance for your advice and thoughts on my questions below. Some background info: I have a manual shift, 1993 Saab 900 Turbo. Noise started coming from the transmission when on the gas in the upper gears, like a knocking sound. I have been told it’s the pinion gear...
  2. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Pulled Auto Trans to do rear main seal. Everything went back together fine. No mixing of coolant in tranny. Tranny Level is full, no leaks. I put about 50 miles on it after the job, running around town, highway runs and back roads. It was shifting great, up down, manual and regular, no...
  3. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    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...
  4. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have a 1999 Saab 93 with 175k on it. I did a partial change of the tranny fluid around 90k by removing the plug and letting her drain the refilling. I have been told that a "better" way exists. That I can remove the tranny fluid piping going to the cooler, which drains more fluid than...

    i am looking at rebuilding an enhanced ecotec motor capable of 450+whp for street and occasional track applications. would an internal upgrades such as forged piston, conn rods, etc, suffice? i know there are two workshops, FMSR and ZZperformance specialise in ecotecs, with enhanced blocks...

    Ok so I just got the infamous 96 shift link problem fixed by getting a new shifter put in, $500 later... I still have problems with it popping out of gear if I rev the RPMs to high in any gear the shifter wants to pop out of place or if I go in reverse too fast it still wants to pop out of gear...
  8. 9-5 Workshop
    This isn't a common thing apparently, but the other day while city driving, my 9-5 suddenly started acting like it was in neutral. I managed to get it over to the side of the street with my momentum. I checked oil, trans fluid, etc and the trans fluid was over full (the mechanic would later say...
  9. 9-5 Workshop
    I recently purchased a 2000 9-5 Aero with auto trans. I was told by the previous owner it would only go into gear when it wanted to. The last time he drove it he made it a block from home and it would not go forward. I got it trailered home and in garage. The tranny fluid was overfilled and was...

  11. 9-5 Workshop
    Okay, I did my due diligence and searched the forum for more info on this problem with the auto transmission. I can get it out of park by inserting another key into the little slot, but was wondering what I'm looking at as far as a permanent fix. The WIS says that there is a solenoid that...
  12. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have an 01 9-3 Viggen that is having a transmission issue that I cannot figure out. It acts as though the clutch is not fully disengaging. I have pressure bled the clutch system, no bubbles came out. I fiddled with the clutch pedal, but it is not loose. In fact I would say the opposite, it...

    Hello, My automatic transmission in my US 1994 OG900 16T cabriolet has died. As these Borg Warners are quite rare in Scandinavia (scandinavians obviously prefer manual transmissions), I would appreciate any tips on where to get one, or offers for such precious devices. I am seeking a refurbished...
  14. C900 Workshop
    When I'm going over 45mph - I hear what sounds like hissing or air being released from the engine. It started doing this just recently. I've topped off all fluids. I know that the transmission needs to be fixed soon (keeps slipping gears). Could it just be the transmission starting to get worse...
