I can see that he had a transmission flush done on the car at 60,000 miles back in...

    Saab 9-2X, 9-4X & 9-7X Workshop
    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...
  7. 2003 9-3 2.0t Automatic

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    SAAB 2003 9-3 2.0t. The tranny is messed up. It looks like the car is enforcing it self too much for the slow motion at the start. When in speed ways it runs easy but starting to move is a pity. When change it to mechanical it goes to M5 directly and when reducing it goes from M5 to M2. Those...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi, I'm new here so not too sure if this is where I need to post a question but I'm going to give it a whirl. My 2003 Saab 9-3 Linear will not go into 4th gear at all. It starts fine, runs good until you get it to around 40 miles per hour and then it loses all gears. Also, if you leave it...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    It started about a two weeks ago, I didn't really hear it first but then I felt it, it's not always present, it sounded like the grinding sound when you miss shift but it doesn't come from the gear lever, It comes directly from the zone near the clutch pedal and it's much softer :o. Symptoms...
  12. No gear engagement in auto trans

    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...
