Questions About 1986 Saab 900’s Transmission

  • How much can my Saab tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your 900 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my 900's transmission fluid checked or exchanged?

Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Saab's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations.
