Hello,

I am curious if the FWD models have a seperate lube sump for the transmission and the "differential". Some toyotas and others have seperate sumps and the fluids are independent, even if the fluids are exactly the same spec.

Ill be buying some saab syn MT fluid or equivalent (not sure what the equivalent is, the fluid is a highly friction modified synthetic ATF) and doing the trans, but Id like to be fully prepped for the job.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

JMH

Your thinking of a final drive unit.

No Saabs do not have.

Final drive, differential, same thing.

You are correct though, they share the same gear oil like most FWD gearboxes/transaxles.
