Transmission Services for 2000 Saab 9-3

Why is Your 2000 9-3’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Saab 9-3 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore Saab 9-3 transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your 9-3’s not even driveable.

2000 Saab 9-3 Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Saab's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Saab tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your 9-3 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 9-3 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my 9-3's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Saab 9-3’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Saab, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
