It hasn't given me the message yet but I'm getting little to no acceleration and I hear what assuming is the fan running over time during idle

The transmission doesn't work.

Car starts and runs alternator replaced 1year ago??

When I went to put my 2000 Saab 9-3 in reverse it made a loud, harsh clunking noise when I did so. Then when I put it in drive, on the dash, the light stayed on reverse even though I was in drive. Also, the check engine light came on. So I parked it and parked it to see if it would make that clunking noise when I put it now reverse gain and it did. Dash still said I was in reverse. When I turned the car off and turned it back on, it didn't happen again and everything was fine. Any ideas on what would be causing that?? When you plugged a code reader in, it didn't give any codes??

recently installed recycled transmission. reverse worked at first now reverse does not engage

When I test drove it it seems I only have 2 gears and there is a lot of play in the shifter when its in gear. It doesn't go into reverse at all.

it the convertible

Check engine light on due to upstream oxygen sensor. Have put in 3 different brand new ones( Walker, Bosch &NTK) light stays off for a couple days then comes right back on. Help?

I want to make sure we do it right. It was caused by water leakage past cabin filter seal. Saw a voltage test and cleaning of contacts on video.

It spits the battery fluid just like your radiator would when it overheats. Don't have any idea what is causing this problem. Please Help

What does a bad cv joint look like

I went outside and found red oil on the ground from under my car.

He changed all valves and hoses but still light comes on when engine is hot. Now clutch makes a whirring noise when clutch pedal depressed. Help!

I adjusted linkage several times and changed oil using Saab oil. This is a 5 speed standard
