As I mentioned on the 9-3 board.
Volvo decided to continue using the 3309 fluid in their 6 speed transmission just like they used in the older 5 speed.
I cannot guarantee that the Saab 6 speed likes that idea and since I can still get the AW-1 fluid I continue using that for the Saab transmission.
Sometimes it can be as easy as that one manufacturer decided to use a different clutch friction material and sometimes it could be that the computer controlled pressure settings are different between two car brands to create a problem using the same fluids.
Impossible to say unless you can get the two designers together and have them duke it out why they did this or that.
And then you have companies like Amsoil that states you can use their transmission fluid in anything that has ever been created. What do they know that each designer from each car manufacturer didn't know?
