What’s the Importance of Your 1985 900’s Transmission?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire.

They're often easy to notice. Saab 900 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Saab 900 transmission problems linger and your could suffer a loss in fuel efficiency or find that you can't drive your 900 at all.

1985 Saab 900 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Saab's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Saab? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 900’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my 900 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1985 900’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Saab. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
