  1. 9-5 Workshop
    I own a 2003 v6 saab 9-5 with a barely working 5 speed automatic transmission. I'm interested in swapping the automatic transmission out for a manual. I checked junkyards near where I live to see if i could find another 9-5 to pull the transmission from, but the only ones I could find where 9-5s...

    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...
  5. 99 & 90 Workshop
    Just replace the clutch, pressure plat, slave, and clutch master cylinder a couple of months ago. Now I still have pedal, and it feels like the shifter is shifting into gear. However, the car wont engage and i can let off the clutch in any gear without stalling. It's like its stuck in neutral.

    Hi, I am trying to find a replacement transmission for my father's 1991 saab c900 turbo convertible. Its a 5spd and reverse and 2nd are completely toasted. I have done alot of work getting the engine back to 100 among other mechanical sub systems. The trans has over 250k and is just checked...
  9. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Dad bought a car that didnt run and had no clutch. Cars running now replaced the clutch and clutch master cylinder along with the slave and throwout bearing. The car shakes very badly at all speeds.. guessing thats unrelated. Itll shift through all the gears without a problem but once you hit 55...
  10. 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...
  11. Engine Oil, Lubricants & Fluids
    I'm scared. A while back, maybe even 6 months ago, I was trying to figure out where my coolant was leaking from. After searching and observing for a while, I came across a hose that was just lying there. Aha! We found it! It seemed to be a perfect fit for a connection coming from the back of my...
  12. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    My wife's Saab has an issue from when she got it. The shifter will go into "M" mode, but it still displays D on the dash and it drives like it's in D. Don't matter if i push to shift up or down there's no 1,2,3,4,5 at all displaying nor engaging. Eventually she'll get a manual car. Everything...
  13. 9-5 Workshop
    Ok so I have an 01 Saab 9-5 wagon, it had the b308 and an auto that was broken. Got the silly idea in my head to swap a manual into it. I was in the process of doing that when I was in an accident and lost my left hand. Now I’m finally getting back to it and I have a totally different kind of...
  14. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Kind of new here, hope I'm posting in the right section. About six months ago, my 9-3 2.0t from 2007 had the shifter cable disconnect from the transmission. I examined the part and after some research found that the bushing connecting the two components was missing. I went online and didn't...
  15. 9-5 Workshop
    I have a 2003 9-5 Linear with the 2.3 motor and only 66k miles. I was driving back from Chicago IL to Columbia MO the other day when the trans fault light came on. The trans fluid does smell bad and it shifts perfect with one exception. Here's the scenario: after a cold start it goes into all...
  16. 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...
  17. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I recently bought my 3rd Saab, a 2001 Viggen. Since acquiring it in October, its been unsurprisingly temperamental. I've had to replace the radiator, fuel pump, and water pump (I feel like its been parked on the side of the 405 freeway for half the time I've owned it) But its okay cause its my...
  18. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I'm writing this up because at the time when I needed to replace my transmission, I couldn't find much solid info on the subject Not long ago I swapped out my transmission (F40-MU9) with the F40-MR6 (I think) from a 2011-2013 buick regal GS. It bolted up without a cinch along with a buick regal...
  19. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey guys, I was looking over some receipts from the dealership that the previous owner of my car left in the glove box of various repairs and maintenance items that he had done on the car since he bought it new. I can see that he had a transmission flush done on the car at 60,000 miles back in...
