The car has a full Saab service history which I imagine means that all the fluid changes and checks have been carried out. Maybe I am being optimistic? I could certainly change the power steering fluid but could this make the car pull to one side? Can you explain what you mean by Tranny? I'm not sure I would know how to test the meters you referred to. I would imagine I need special equipment to test them. Is this correct? Elliot
