The 3spd slushboxes, especially in turbos, fail like clockwork. Good time to convert to 5spd. If turbo, also consider the turbo and headgasket. Otherwise, that's pretty young. Most 1986+ 5spd 900s that I've seen and had have gone to 180k easily before wanting things like clutch, starter, alternator, etc. Go to saabnet.com and look at the tech faqs to get a better idea. lycka till!
