1996 Saab 900 Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Saab's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Saab? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's 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. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 900 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my 900 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Saab 900 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
