Does anyone know what kind of oil is needed for an Aisin Warner TF-60SC AF40 ?
I found this information in French :
it says JWS 3309 Esso for cars with Euro 4 engines (from 1/1/2006) and AW-1 for cars withs Euro 5 (from 1/1/2011), both oils can't be used instead of eachothers.
Any information here ?

I suspect you'll need this:



For euro-saab-parts, you will need to input part number 93165147 into the search box.

Never forget your car is a Saab lol!

My BLS is a 1.9 diesel that's why I mentionned the transmission details, are you sure the 93165147 is the right one ?

Sorry for the late reply, got to have a weekend away sometimes!

I'm assuming here your car is the TTID estate? I cannot commit myself to tell you that the part number I have given you is exactly what you require. I gleaned this information from just 5 minutes of looking on the web. You need to check with a Saab dealer or Saab independent mechanic or possibly an Opel dealer in France?

If you look again on the eeuroparts.com link I posted in my last post and read the manufacturer info, it should give you the information you require.

I'm sorry I can't be of more assistance. You could of course contact Bauer-Millett in Manchester or Evans Halshaw, Wavendon, Milton Keynes for further advice.

He's listed his BLS as an '06 the TTiD engine didn't come out till the '08 the BLS V1.1 came out, I think he has the TiD engine.

yes it's a 2006 with 150hp 1.9Tid 4 door sedan
Thanks for the link S70RMP, unfortunately there is no diesel, probably not sold in the US...

Any confirmation about this ?

More from the Saab forum---The Haynes manual quotes "AW-1 part number 93 165 147" as the correct fluid for the Aisin Warner 6 speed auto transmission.

This is a mineral-based oil (not synthetic). Saab advises against using synthetic oil, otherwise malfunction may occur.

The Aisin Warner AF40-6 utilizes "slip-lock technology" in it's design for changing gears. Sythetics are just too slippery for efficient "slip lock" functionality.

Αs long as the fluid meets the Aisin-Warner 'AW-1' spec, then it should be fine to use.

This info I beleive applies to my 08"ttid"As already stated be safe and ring a dealer for details.

Thanks to all of you for your information !!
I could not find the right info first because the gear is a 80SC instead of a 60SC that might not even exist, my mistake...:bigroll:
