Hope to sell as is to someone who will have money to fx it. If there is too much fluid, rotating parts are dipped in the fluid, leading to the build up of foam. This is a problem solving forum for over 250,000 Saab owners, so expect to see problems discussed here even though our cars are generally very reliable. I don't run nearly the ratio they suggest in the engine and gearbox.
