from my (just aquired - first SAAB) 1971 '96 V-4 1700.
Could you tell me what oil to put in the transmission and how much of it - also what is the engine capacity, inc'l filter.

The 1700 cc (I have one too) has the same sump capacity as the 1500 cc (unless modified) same for the 'box. Howerver I shall check my books and tell you the exact volums...

Engine inc filter 5.8 imperial pints 3.3 litres
Gearbox 3.0 imperial pints 1.7 litres

See ya!
