Sorry if it's been asked before, can't really find much detail about the oil. Thinking of doing a partial oil change until I can get it done at the garage properly, what spec is the oil in the auto gearbox (AF40)? The parts place I use won't keep genuine saab, so I would like to know if its 75-90, gl-4 or gl-5, synthetic etc.

Thank you very much :)

I'm sure I read somewhere 3309 was bad for the 6 speed gearbox? Not questioning you just don't want to end up with a munched gearbox, happened in a previous car I owned when I put wrong oil in :/

Was curious, so found this link on SC. Maybe it will help. Post #15 supports your concern.
