  1. help!

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Has anyone saved (or killed) a Saab transmission by changing the fluid? just bought a 2002 9-3 auto hatch with 120k. It had been sitting for about a year i think.

    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...
