It is possible that the fluid could be contributing to the problem. this happened with at least some Fords. Changing the fluid is probably the least expensive step--it certainly won't hurt anything, and could help. Obviously, it won't cure a mechanical problem.
Were it mine, I'd use AMSOIL synthetic ATF, which retails for a bit over $10 a quart. Otherwise, some searching should find you a fluid less than the price quoted for Saab fluid. Some Japanese cars also use the same make transmission and fluid for them are compatible and cheaper.
