Not sure, but I am fairly certain that Saab actually recommends engine oil in the tranny. A lot of folks have used Mobil-1 synthetic as their tranny oil. Saab also sells a recommended synthetic, or maybe part synthetic, oil. Be sure to flush it by draining, filling, running for a few minutes, then draining and re filling. I myself am a little leery of synthetics where non-synthetics have been for a long time due to seal issues. Bob
