  2. Saab 9-3 manual trans problem

    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...
  3. 9-3 '02 Automatic Transmission problems

    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...
  4. Big Mistake- Clogged Tranny Air Vent Hose

    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...
  5. 2006 2.0t shifter issue. Wont engage "M" mode?🤔

    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...
  6. Cobalt ss turbo engine -> og9-5

    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...
  7. Issues With Shifter Linkage

    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...

    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...

  10. My Viggen is just playing games with me now

    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...
  11. F40 Transmission replacement (Buick Regal Trans)

    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...
  12. Transmission Flush: Dealer may have put wrong fluid back in my car.

    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...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    So just a quick header: A: I know this is an Opel Forum, but it's a similar platform and you folks have been an invaluable wealth of info so far, so here goes. B: I recently made the mistake of hiring a cut rate guy off craigslist to replace the clutch. When he reassembled everything, he didn't...
  15. 2008 SAAB 9-5 Manual Reverse Grind

    9-5 Workshop
    Hello, So I recently got a 2008 SAAB 9-5 with a 5 speed manual. I've been having issues with my gearbox, reverse doesn't like to go in smoothly. This is even after shifting into first before hand, or second before and I am in no way rough with the transmission. I try my best to be careful...
  16. Clutch Problem

    C900 Workshop
    I drive a Saab 900T from 1991. When driving I frequently experience problems getting into and out of 1st and 2nd gear. If I then lift my foot off the clutch pedal once, and press it down again it works fine. The longer I drive the car the more frequent the problem gets. I would appreciate any...
  17. Mushy feeling shifting into 2nd, 4th, and reverse?

    Hello all! I have a 2005 9-3 Linear, 5-speed manual, with around 108k miles on it. My transmission has felt solid up until today. Suddenly it feels like a fight to shift into 2nd, 4th, and reverse. Almost like dragging the it through caramel. I don't have this issue in 1st, 3rd, or 5th however...

  19. Changing Automatic Transmission Solenoids

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I've noticed that a lot of tutorials are lacking now that Photobucket is a terrorist holding half the Internet's pictures for ransom, so I figure I'll document things I do to my car in hopes that people in the future won't be a fish out of water. I'm not a very good teacher so it might be a...
  20. 5 speed manual trans fill bolt

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi, I have a question on my 5 speed manual trans. The fill bolt of course has been stripped out by the previous owners. Any ideas or suggestions on getting this fill bolt removed? I think it was a horrible idea to put a hex bolt as a fill bolt on the transmission. I've already tried using a torx...
