Saab has a always been a puzzle to me. They almost seem like cult car, at least the older unusual ones. But the 9-3 is a newer model Saab introduced in 1998, and is still puzzling to me, but uses modern day transmissions and drive line components.
I’ll lay it on the line, I owned a transmission shop from 1982 to 2006. Saab was one car we hesitated to work on. It’s the difficulty factor, and it is built in a difficult way to repair, so we declined. At least until they started using GM front wheel drive chassis and transmissions.
By them, I sold my shop, by my interest and education did not stop. If you own a generation one Saab model 9-3, your best bet is to buy a Saab 9-3 rebuilt transmission for sale at a fair price.
Simply put, these are hard cars to work on and difficult transmissions to repair. It makes a lot of sense to purchase a transmission that will work perfectly the first time and continue to do so for a long time thereafter. One rebuilt by a qualified professional.
In fact, it’s a proven fact that when dealing with an unknown, a costly and expensive piece of equipment like a transmission, the best products always cost less in the long run in terms of less-aggravation and more value received.
The second generation Saab 9-3 used very modern hi technology transmissions with some special features as an option. A 5 & 6 speed “Sentronic” automatic transmission is offered. Named the AW 55-50SN, and built by the Asian Warner Company.
The AW 55-50SN automatic overdrive transmission has an electronically activated lockup torque converter for added fuel economy. It can be found in many different vehicles such as General Motors, Volvo, Saab, Renault and Fiat.
Although it looks the same, there are small internal differences. Changes that can’t be scene from the outside.
The 55-50SN is also referred to as the AF23/33-5 transmission by some manufacturers such as GM.
This transmission incorporates the final drive unit in the same case as the transmission, therefore it is known as a Transaxle. It is a fully operational automatic transmission which has five forward gears and is 100% electronically
A TCM [Transmission Control Module] commands the transmission to shift perfectly in any situation due to sensors sending real time inputs to the computer for impressive seamless shifts.
One of the main reasons our re-manned units outperforms the competitions is we use new factory solenoids and the most effective approved updates to offer a better transmission than came in the car originally. Our guarantee proves it.
