Saab 9-3 1999 Possible Transmission Problem?!?!?

Post by asusaab » Sun Sep 18, 2011 2:58 am

I have a 1999 Saab 9-3S Turbo with 116K. Recently I purchased the vehicle, private seller, and yesterday my vehicle stopped accelerating on the highway. I veered to the shoulder. After restarting the car, it had just enough power to remain in 1st-2nd gear for a few feet. The car looses the ability to accelerate/drive, however, sometimes, once it has been off for a while, can be driven apprx. 30 seconds and then you are back to square one. The engine still revs up, but none of the power is getting to the transmission or the wheels.

The "check engine" and "gearbox" light went on.

I ran an OBD2 and get following codes: P0340, P0722, P0730.

Any thoughts out there?
