yes, i am wondering about a transmission problem on a 96 saab 9000cse, it makes a whinning sound similar to a power stearing pump low on oil, the noise dissapates when driving and the transmission seems to work fine other than the noise. the engine runs fine and there are now lights on in the dash.
the noise is anytime the engine is running and it there does not seem to be a noticable change when put in or taken out of gear , it does however seem to go away when driving
the power steering works fine and the fluid is full, as i do not have the car here i cannot physically check the steering pump at this time however i do not believe it is the pump.
