Its sounds kind of an transmission > sound. Sounds like a transmission problem to me...This is a well known problem for 96's, especially the first ones with the V4 that couldn't handle the power of the engine. The same has occured on a few 96's i've had. The never ones don't seem to have this same problem as much. Samuel Saab 99 GL -82 216 000 km Saab 99 Super, Cabriolet -79/81 Saab 9000i -89 249 000 km
