    Hello guys Have a problem with my 2009 Saab 9-3 1.8t (Biopower). When I shift in high RPM (after 4500 RPM, any gear) the clutch pedal wont come up all the way. It comes up 1/3 of the way, and I have to push it up with my foot. It is possible to change gear even if I dont push up. If I pump...

    Hi, I own a Saab 9-5 2003 2.2tid, and I would like to know with you if TITAN ATF 4400 is a good choice for this transmissions. After warm, the transmission start to delay about 2 seconds to shift another gear and that causes rising engine speed... In cold conditions, it works just fine. Thanks...

    What do you guys suggest to improve the shifting feel of the 6-speed manual gearbox? I don't really want to get the short shifter (I'm happy with the stock throw, and it is rather expensive), but don't know of any other ways to improve the notchiness of the stock mechanism. I have seen the...

    My Saab 2001 Saab 9-3 SE RPMs linger or event increase by a couple hundred between shifts with my foot off the gas pedal and clutch pedal pressed down. No engine light on. Throttle body was cleaned and no vacuum leak detected. The RPM increase between shifts with clutch pedal suppressed and...
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I am looking seriously at a 1991 9000 turbo that will not shift into 5th. It feels as though the linkage is not lined up correctly. The car shift into 1-4 just fine, not completely perfectly but it does have 200k on it. When attempting to shift into 5th all that I get is a grinding feel and...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Considering buying a cheap 1994 900S 5 sp manual for my son to learn how to drive a manual car. Saw one yesterday, has a few cosmetic issues, sketchy service history(still has a blue oil filter- I suspect it has not had a filter change for a while!), no air-con(regas or new air compressor...

  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Just bought the 98 900s and now going over the car. I noticed that the tranny is shifting hard sometimes so i changed the fluid and noticed a positive change. I think the mounts might be bad too. But my major concern is the down-shifting. When coming to a stop, the transmission seems to wait...
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    1987 9000s automatic When I start the car in the morning (or anytime it has been sitting for a few hours), it will almost always stall once or twice when I shift to D or R unless I hit the gas and accelerate quickly. Before stalling, it will rev unnecessarily up and down, almost stalling, then...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello all, My first post... I have been experiencing (Infrequently) some abrupt shifting seemingly between 2nd to 1st gears with deceleration. Also sometimes between upshift of 2-3rd gears with mild to moderate acceleration. My 9-5ARC is a 2004 model with 39K miles with original trans oil. I...
  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    While driving my car, almost everytime I downshift into second gear it pops out and I just end up revving my car. It will stay in if I hold it down, but if I don't hold it down strong it tries to pop out and grinds gears Will new bushings fix the issue? Do I just need to do an adjustment...
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    The fluid has been changed recently and now appears this bad shifting from 3rd to 4th. Any ideas? I remember about some guy who once told me that when you changed the fluid, it is important not to change it ALL, that it is better to remove only some of the fluid, to avoid problems. Do you think...

  15. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi Only had my 2.0 n/a auto for 3 months and am very pleased with it. However, I notice that under full throttle, although the a'box shifts up fine, the revs seem to drop more than I expected bewteen changes at the redline in 'S'. I guess this is a characteristic of the box itself, not a fault...

    I have a 96- 9000 cse turbo automatic. At times the transmission seems to shift too soon. I don't know if it is skipping a gear. The reaction is the same as if with a manual and one was to shift from 1st to 4th. The engine boggs down. To resolve I have to down shift manually and continue.

    Transmission shifts harshly especially down shifts. Fluid is fresh and unit does not slip.
