There is a design flaw with these transmissions. Saab upgraded the recommended transmission oil. There is a repair kit I think the part number is a kit, part #5440516. Some Saab dealers didn't know about the "new" parts upgrade and gearbox rebuilders may not be up to date with the changes either. It requires gear box disassemble to repair.
