Hello Eric, This is a very common problem in colder weather because the tranny oil will thicken. The best you can do is to use the weight that Saab recommends for your car. Perhaps you need to switch to 5W? I hope this helps you find and fix your problem. Tony ------------------------------------------------------------ Quality Saab parts at discount prices.
