I need some help trying to find a transmission for my car. If anyone sees one of these lying around:



(preferably without the funny looking people)
Please let me know!

I've been searching junkyards to no avail. The condition of the transmission doesn't matter as long as it's the 5-speed manual. I'm going to rebuild it, but I have to have one to rebuild and can't afford to be driving the truck around the whole time I spend rebuilding mine.

BTW, I bent one of my rims in MW :p

Yeah, me too. I was almost 20 back then. And now here we are more than 20 years later....

Anyway, I don't know any salvage yards out there, but there are quite a few on Jefferson Ave. in Grand Prairie. Don't know if they have any Saabs, though.

My tranny is ~300k miles old. The synchros are in BAD shape and first and second gear are pretty sorry too (think I'm missing about 3 teeth total). The c900 trannies are pretty much like the E4ODs in that, if you get over 200k out of them you are GOLD... so my 300k is something along the lines of seeing bigfoot.

Although, if you wouldn't mind, could you ask your buddy if he knows anywhere to find the engine and main wiring harnesses for less than $1000? (Saab comps show retail being $1040 for JUST the engine harness. At that price I could custom wire everything and put some badass extras in...)

Is it a turbo model? Does it run? Thanks for noticing!

Nope. That's for the NG900. The GM V6 is a whole different beast from the SAAB 2.0L I4.
