    hi all I was just wondering if anyone uses a vacuum pump to drain off the fluid from the autobox rather than draining it. The reason I ask is that thetranny fluid on my newly aquired 9-5 auto is a very brown colour and will need the 3 cycle clean process leaving a day or 2 between...

    Hi. 1994 900NG 2.3 non-turbo automatic 'vert. 105000 miles. I have a problem with my auto box. When cold, it's fine. When it warms up, and I select reverse, it goes in hard, with a bang and the "check gearbox" lights up. It then goes into limp mode. Switching the car off and back on...

    Hello everybody. I have a squeal on changing up 2 to 3 and on the odd time 3 to 4. I've read other similar posts and I'm guessing the prognosis is not going to be good. The oil is brown and smells burnt. The car is a 2.0 lpt with 145k on the clock. The difference between my car and the other...

  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Just bought the car and it is slow engaging drive from rest, it takes maybe 10 seconds and then if you don't have your foot on the brake it jolts into drive, reverse is ok, snatches once underway on downshifts but ok on upshifts. Is this going to be mega expensive to fix or not ? Saab dealer in...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have just bought an old 98 registered 9-3 2lt T cabrio, and a week into my ownership, I put it into reverse and it suddenly felt like the gear 'dropped' in and now there is a terrible banging noise when moving and the engine sounds really rough and is vibrating. I know it doesn't sound good...

    Hi there Just wondering if you can help with this. My Griffin is a one owner, full Saab service history car with 68k miles. It drives brilliantly but when cold it "slurs" into top (revs rise before engaging gear), especially under heavy throttle. It only does this when cold and otherwise...

    i have a 2000 9-3 turbo cab with autobox(lpt) when its cold the box takes a while to change to second i.e. higher revs than when its warmed up is this normal. also the pull away seems very sluggish compared to my 900 turbo. is it just because my 900 was 185 bhp and manual compared to this. i...

    Folks, I could do with some help on this one. Just changed the ATF fluid and car has been running OK for a week. Now without warning when up to temperature, the car will lose drive and stall. I have to wait 10-15 mins to get her going again. Only doing small mileages at the moment with a lot of...

    Hi Gurus, I have an MY03 Aero with 90,000 miles. The auto box has been clunking badly from Neutral to Drive. The gear change is quite good between 1 & 5 on auto or paddle shift. However, the N -> D change is terrible. I've had the box flushed and re-filled with ATF3309 a couple of times, and...

    Hi all Ive had my automatic 53-Aero a few months now and still can't find the point of the manual change. Its slow to change and when i really want to use it, the wheel is turned so far I can't find the paddles! Does anyone find it worthwhile and use it routinely? Chris

    Hi, Has anyone had this issue before. I've got a 9-3 Vector Sport with a 6 Speed autobox. When accelerating it sometimes disengages the gear and the engine just revs freely. The only way to get it to re-engage is to back of the throttle and once the revs have come back down it re-engages...

    Hi, I'm new to the forum, but I've been going round in circles trying to get answers to my problem. I have a 9-3SS 150 TID with a 6 speed autobox. About 3 months ago it started playing up when kicking down. Instead of being instant it holds back and then clunks / bangs in very hard. The car...

    I have acquired an early-ish (about 1990) 4HP18 autobox dipstick, which has a flexible rubbery black measuring section and a yellow plastic top. Coincidentally, the broken-off nylon measuring end (now very brittle) of the original dipstick on my '95 V6 CSE came out with the fluid this time, so I...

    Hi I have a 97 2.3LPT auto and it has developed a rattle and was wondering what it might be. The car had an engine rebuild (all the chains/sprockets/shafts etc.) just before I got it following a blown head gasket and has only done 3,000 miles since then. The autobox also get fresh fluid and...
