When you want to change out the automatic transmission on the 1991 Saab 9000 Turbo, do you have to pull the engine, or will the trans come out without doing that?

    Thanks, Dr. Demon. Can this be done with the engine still in the car, or must I pull it out of the engine bay first?

99 saab auto 9-3 auto gearbox stops working when car warms up I did have coolant in gearbox prior empty oil and replace new oil 3 times was ok


I assume that you replaced the radiator, or had the trans cooler replaced, since that is how coolant gets into the trans. If this is what happened, the coolant becomes emulsified with the trans fluid, it caused a major mess inside the transmission. Just changing the fluid is not the fix. You will either have to have the trans removed, disassembled, and thoroughly cleaned and rebuilt,or replace it.

Will not shift out first gear


I assume this is an automatic?
If the shift linkage is not damaged (jammed or disconnected the usual answer is the governer valve in the transmission is sticking.
The fix for this normally involves pulling the trans out stripping it apart cleaning the governer valve new seals gaskets and reassembling.
(translated lots of money) try using a auto trans flush to clean all the gunk out of the transmission. Run the trans through all the gears with the trans flush and try driving it (only short distance test drive as its not proper trans fluid) see if you can get it out of first gear (flatten the gas pedal and let the engine go to max revs on short bursts) once it shifts once or twice go back and remove the trans flush fluid and replace with correct specification auto trans fluid I would also change the transmission filter at this point if it was mine .

Merc clk 1999 fault


on most cars, you need to change the neutral safety switch. this car has a neutral parking position sensor, you can find it for v6 not v8, it also fits a saab 9-3. it is the same thing, a different style. however, check the transmission fluid level and troublecodes for p07xxs. reset the code and use the transmission dipstick by dorman add lucas auto trans fluid, not stop slip to the fill line. most of the time it's not the solenoid, but the auto trans plate, overfilling the fluid can cause it to trigger a check engine light, and the fluid leaking onto it can cause it to be permanently damaged, it's more than $400 for the part. lucas works in the 722.xx transmissions, most , all, clks 99-2002, just make sure the tranny model isn't a 238. i like it better than atf 134. However, these parts are very heat sensitive. fill the trans fluid, reset the troublecodes, do a general motos drive cycle from obdii.com if it doesn't drive good after four times, change the neutral safety switch. :)

Where is the transmission fluid located? how to get a manual for free?


There is a transmission dip stick on the side of the engine, this is used to check the trans fluid level. The engine oil dipstick has a large diameter plastic cap, and is on the left/driver's side of the car (in North America); the trans dipstick has two notches at the bottom when removed and a label telling the fluid to use. The best source of info on this car is the "Bentley Bible" aka the Saab 900 Official Service Manual, costs about $40 from Amazon! 16 valve manual: http://www.amazon.com/Saab-900-Valve-Service-Manual/dp/0837603137 8 valve manual :http://www.amazon.com/Eight-Official-Service-Manual-1981-1988/dp/0837603102 get the appropriate manual for your car and enjoy the Saab!. + If this helps, please give a "thumbs up", thanks. saabreur

Transmission


changing a automatic transmission over to a manual transmission is difficult to do for several reasons. the pedals are one, and most american engines are built for a specfic transmissions, are two. Engines built for auto trans, the crankshaft is not drilled to accept the imput shaft of a manual trans, so unless you want to change the entire drivetrain engine and all...

My opinion.....I would look at just buying a manual shift car.

Management Light and Automatic Transmission Fault Indicator


you may be having actual trans. problems. You said saab replaced selector switch on trans? Do you know when the last time the trans was serviced? Sometimes flushing trans will help if it has not been too long.. I recommend flushing the trans every 30k, if it has never been done and you have 90-120k you may need a new transmission.

Finding transmission filter on 1994 SAAB 900 2.5L


The filter is behind the pump, and is not serviceable without pulling the transmission. Someone posted a picture of a filter for the ZF transmission in a 9000. your transmission is an aisin warner.

Motor and trans mount replacements


The part number for the trans mount is the same for the 2, 2.3 and 2.5 liter engines. It is 4356184. It is $51.00 for the aftermarket Febi/Bilstein and $125.52 for the OEM Saab part. The 2.3 liter mount you want to use will work, but only if it came off an auto trans. car. Additional infor available on SaabSite: http://www.thesaabsite.com/900new/NG900mounts.htm
