Warning light comes on when accelerating from a stand-still in 1st / 2nd gear
When I accelerate in 1st or 2nd gear an orange warning light comes on in the display panel beneath the speedometer. I don't know what the light means - can anyone help? The light looks like a box with water spouting out of the top of it and is situated directly above the red "Parked" light that comes on when the handbrake is on.
I think the power has also dropped - is this serious? Should I take it to a garage? The car is a 1997 Saab 9000 CSE.

Hi it sounds like the low water warning light for the windscreen washers, some models have a warning for low level. when you are accelerating the water level is running away from the sender. check the levels and fill up all your water bottles. try after that. hope this is your problem and it is ok.

whatever the reason for diesel in oil is harmful as the diesel makes the oil thin and loose its ability to lubricate the engine properly.
1st it can be overfuelling and that would cause that alot of black smoke coming out of your exhaust especially when accelerating hard
2nd it can be that the injectors are not sealing properly and dripping fuel while the engine not running
Governor pressure controls the 1st and 2nd shifts. After that is the 3 and 4 solenoids. you would need to look at the pressure when driving(takes a scanner). pressure is 20 to 30 PSI from 1st to 2nd, depends on acceleration. After that the pressure will jump to 100+ psi. Did you replace the governor solenoid and sensor? They are on the passenger side of the transmission and sit in a block that detaches from the valve body.
Sounds like theres no 1st gear. Have you put the shifter in 1 and seen if it went, if so try 2-3 if it still accelerates slowly its probally stuck in 1st or 2nd gear, when it goes in to the 3 rd gear it will accelerate normally, also in 4th (OverDrive)
Sounds like you have a major misfire problem. The light is flashing because the ecm has determined that the problem is severe enough to cause damage to something. If your engine light flashes it is a warning not to drive the vehicle. I'm assuming this is a four cylinder. My guess would be that only two of the cylinders are actually producing any power. I would need the following details to help you further. How many miles are on this engine? Has the necessary factory maintenance schedule been maintained? In other words have the appropriate parts been changed and serviced to keep this engine performing properly. Many things could be causing your issues. Do the necessary maintenance first, like spark plugs and whatever the manufacturer requires and see what happens. If this does not help I can help you with the rest.
have you check the oil level on trans and have you change the oil on the engine lately check the levels on both. Usually on engine is too much oil car drags and on trans if low oil it usually stays in gear to protect the trans. your car is telling you check oil. No lubrication some warning lights do not come up for trans
