1979-1993 & 94 Conv
eeuroparts is a good place to start for parts on these cars. You are right that a lot of generic parts stores are pretty weak when it comes to maintaining saabs... even finding Ford Type F can be a nuisance. I would suggest doing an ATF drain and refill each time you do an oil change. Over time, it will clean up and that will help extend the transmission lifetime.
You mentioned the bottom of the car was oily, as well as the chassis surfaces under the air filter... could the car have been oil sprayed? You would *hate* my cars... they are coated in oil/slime... The stuff is everywhere!! In every body cavity, every seam, etc... It's a huge mess to work on the car, but it prevents them from rusting and probably the only reason I'm still daily driving a 1993 c900 up here in the salt belt. Basically, what I'm saying is the oil might be a good thing.
