1988 Saab 900s Turbo

04-03-2006, 06:20 PM
We have a 1988 Saab 900s Turbo, which we drove for a while and worked perfectly fine, but then we let it sit in the garage for a while and when we tryed to drive it again it wouldn't go into first or reverse gear. We changed the pump that connects directly to the clutch pedal, and now we're trying to figure out what the promblem could be other than the clutch itself. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

that is a very common issue with those. my 91 does the same thing. you might try changing the transmission fliud. it seems to help mine for a while.
i have heard that some people use a high performance oil, but i cant think of the name of it right now. i use BG multi-gear concentrate in mine. if oil change doesnt fix it (you probably have a leak too) you may need to take it in to the shop. people that really know how to rebuild those tranny's are getting scarce.
