Saab barely makes it up the drive

Asked by May 10, 2015 at 09:43 PM about the 1993 Saab 900 2 Dr Turbo Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1993 Saab automatic transmission barely made it up my steep drive.  I took it out
today and once I got it on the street, it seem to miss a gear but after that did great.  Any
ideas of what is going on?  It's my fun summer ride.
