I dont have an answer for you but, if your Saab has a modulator valve that may need to be replaced. I have an old Ford and I had to replace one around a month ago.The valve is supposed to tell the transmission the load of the engine so it can change.Another thing you will probably have to get your computer checked if it is a newer model.

Where do you put transmission fluid in a 2002 Chevy Tahoe?

I have a 2002 Chevy Tahoe as well. Like many cars, the automatic transmission fluid is poured directly into the same tube the transmission dipstick is located. The transmission dipstick has a red locking grip with the words 'TRANS/LOCK ->' imprinted on the handle. Do not confuse with the engine oil dipstick which has a yellow grab ring. The transmission dipstick has two ranges - one for cold transmission fluid levels, the other for hot transmission fluid levels. Please refer to page 6-25 of your user manual for specifics about this. Suffice it to say, the manual suggests only adding transmission fluid after checking the hot transmission fluid level where it is found to be low. The cold transmission fluid range is for reference only and is not trustworthy. If adding transmission fluid, be sure to use fluid labeled as Dexron III - any other type may cause permanent damage to the transmission.

You failed to mention whether this is a manual or an automatic transmission. Automatics are normally filled through the dipstick tube.

One removes the plug (normally a 17mm Allen in VWs) and sticks ones finger in there, the fluid should be at the bottom of the hole. With the automatic transmission, the dipstick has markes on it, usually for hot and cold levels.
