Why is Your 1990 900’s Transmission So Important?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard 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 your 900 isn’t working at all.

Questions About 1990 Saab 900’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Saab 900? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. 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? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1990 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
