NEED HELP 2006 9-7x Transmission issues.

#1
First of all, I need to say thank you all for sharing your knowledge and insight, I find the amount of info available here unbelievable. Well, after spending all of last weekend working on my 2006 4.2 Saab 9-7x and a full week of driving with no issues I have some new issues. My wife was driving to work this am and she said she heard a “clunk” sound and the car wouldn’t move in drive but would go into reverse. She was only right down the road so I brought her my truck. Once I got into the car and put it into drive it was like it stayed in neutral. If I shift it into 1st it will drive but when I shift into second it makes an odd groaning sound momentarily like clutches are slipping or something. I also got a “stabilitrack not ready” warning on dash. I checked tranny fluid and it is at correct level and surprisingly clean. Any thoughts? Is the tranny shot or I have read about solenoid issues.

Just a bit of recent history, last week she complained of a strange noise and “shutter” when turning at low speeds. After reading some of the forums here I changed fluids in front and rear differentials and ordered AutoTrack II fluid to change transfer case fluid. In the mean time, I pulled the control motor off of the transmission and the problem went away. The shaft going into TC moved freely but there was a broken tooth on a gear in the planetary which jammed it up. I ordered and replaced and the car has been fine since. My plan was to change transfer case fluid when she got home from work today but now I feel like I’m looking at bigger issues.

Any help would be awesome?!

That’s what I thought too but the new problem is the transmission. I did all that work a week ago.......now it only moves in reverse or if I manually shift it into first.

Nothing. Something internal in transmission, i assume. Going to bring it to a transmission shop. Strange coincidence I guess, still having a hard time believing it.
