Buy another 5 spd Saab, but make sure you use regular oil in your trans. I had an 83 900T and and 87 900S. I used Castrol GTX 10W30 and never had any trans problems. The 83 900T had over 251,000 miles on the original tranny. The last 50, miles I used 4 oz. of Militec-1 with the oil. It dramatically slowed down wear. I changed my tranny oil every 20,000 to 25,000 miles. After I started using the Militec-1, the metal sludge on the drain plug disappeared. Ken Washington 87 9000S 87 900S 83 900T No Autos
