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

The transmission fluid is located INSIDE of the transmission...it provides lubrication, pressures and allows friction.
Haynes has a repair manual for this vehicle.

My 1991 Saab 900 is shifting perfectly except it will not go into


I've had a similar problem, and it was the rubber bushings in the shifter link; as some particular ones age they get sloppy and 5th gear seems to be the one that suffers. Others will age and disintegrate, then you won't be able to shift at all. If all the other gears are fine (no grinding, judder, popping out of gear or other untoward behaviour) I'd look to these rubber bushings, and replace them all while you're at it. They're replaceable at much less cost than a tranny rebuild, and are most likely that cause, i.e. after rebuilding tranny, you still won't get into 5th because the shifter won't have been rebuilt, just the contents of the gear box!

Check the "Bentley Bible" aka the Saab 900 Official Service Manual, costs about $40 from Amazon, for info, it's an invaluable resource!

Manual transmission clutch will engage


There are two possibilities to consider:
  1. the master cylinder is leaking/by-passing hydraulic fluid
  2. the slave cylinder is leaking/by-passing fluid
You didn't mention a fluid leak, so that would eliminate the obvious cause of a leaking pipe. However, check for leaks around the master cylinder (on the firewall) and at the front of the engine by the clutch itself. This would indicate which of the two might be the problem, If they haven't been replaced in many years, it's probably sensible to replace both at once. The slave cylinder can be replaced without removing the engine. If you have ABS, you'll likely need to loosen/remove the alternator.

Good luck!

Where is the transmission in line filter located for a 92 saab


I assume you have an automatic transmision (the manual is basically "fill and forget unless it leaks" as it wasn't designed with a drain point, but check the level periodically, anyway) Like pretty much all auto trans, the filter is located inside the bottom pan, and for Saab is a metal encased rectangular unit, with rounded end. It is cleanable and re-used. Drain the pan; clean the pan exterior and drop it; remove filter mounting bolts and filter and clean with suitable solvent or clean ATF; clean pan and magnet in pan and reinstall magnet in the SAME position; re-install filter with NEW O ring; dry pan and re-install with NEW gasket (no sealant); install drain plug; re-install cross members/support plates what have you torques: pan mounting bolts 71-106 in-lb drain plug 44-71 in-lb REFILL the transmission, and with handbrake on and engine running, shift through all gears. Then re-check fluid levels and check for leaks. If this helps you, please give a "thumbs up" thanks Saabreur

1988 Saab 900 8v Cannot locate transmission fluid checkfill point


multi-part answer!
one fan is for A/C cooling, other is for radiator. Neither come on until engine is warm. (Check the Townsend saabmaster site at http://townsendimports.com/Web/entry/tech_doc_systems.htm for reasons why you should use low temp fan switch and thermostat)

The auto trans dip stick IS in the front, by the ignition coil. For more positive identification it should have two notches at the bottom, on opposite sides, and a label attached at the top indicating the fluid type to use. Fill between them is about 1/2 litre.

The best source of info on this car is the "Bentley Bible" aka the Saab 900 Official Service Manual, costs about $40 from Amazon!

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.

93 Saab 900 manual transmission is seizing


check the fluid ( reg oil 5 w 30 or 10 w 30 )by checking the check point when the car is cold ( not run for 6 hours) on the passenger side bold under the exhaust manifold. I think it is 19 mm. you should have 3 quarts. Also there is a filter on the rear cover that has a magnetic trap that needs to be replaced. Also you need the rear gasket if you are taking that panel off. dont reuse paper gaskets! they will always fail.

in that transmission shift gear first, then give gas. it is not very forgiving.
