Saab deleted the transmission drain plug on the 900 in the early 1990s, claiming that the transmission oil was a "lifetime fill."
If you want to change the oil, the old gearbox lube will need to be drawn out through the transmission dipstick tube with a siphon pump. Saab recommends 10W-30 engine oil as the medium of lubrication. Check your Owners Manual for other options.
It is not possible to properly drain all of the oil through the dipstick tube. It is preferable and recommended by SAAB to remove the stamped steel differential cover (8 bolts). With the car jacked up from the front, full draining is assured. The differential cover contains an oil "catcher" and filter which should be dismantled and cleaned--you will find bits of metal and junk here. Look for an excessive number of larger metal chips or "mud" which would indicate harsh use of the transmission and/or incipent pinion bearing failure. Be sure to use a new gasket when you put the cover back on. 10W-30 engine oil (petroleum oil, NOT SYNTHETIC OIL) is preferred.

My clutch is slipping so in first gear I have no acceleration and then after flooring it a bit I finally get going its 1996 saab 900s is that a clutch cable or a clutch itself


you need a new clutch, try this, apply the brake,, and try moving the car , normally when increasing the rpm's a motor (and good clutch) will win out every time, if you can raise the rpm's and it still stalls out you have other issues, But My bet would be you need a clutch replacement

I have a 1996 saab 900S 2.3L with a check engine light obd2 code p0341 camshaft position sensor out of range. I am told this engine does not have a cam position sensor but that saab uses this code for...


I also have a saab 900 s with the 2.3 L. I started throwing the same code. I found out from the Hanes manual that the CMP sensor is integrated into the distributor on this model. Which explains why the distributor costs so much. You might want to check your distributor out and makes sure their is no oil in the cap and that the black electric plug is fit on correctly. If it's okay just watch for rough idle (that's what mine started doing), unfortunately it looks like if your cam position sensor needs to be replaced you have to replace the entire distributor.

Replacing ignition switch on Saab 1996 900s 2.3 I 5 speed


You take all the center console and plastic ducts from between the seats. There are 4 10mm bolts holding the shifter mechanism to the floor. Take these off and do your best to flip the whole housing to where you can access the bottom side. The ignition switch is attached under there. As I recall there are 2 T20 screws holding it on.

Cannot engage reverse gear


Hi,

To my understanding this is a common problem with Saab 900s. The cure was to replace the existing linkages with an upgraded one. There was even a recall or service bulletin to this effect.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
