Is there a forward facing child carseat for 1986 944 Porsche?
Answer . The Porsche 944 appeared in 1982 as a brawnier update to the 1975-1988 Porsche 924. Porsche began exporting the 944 to North America the following year.. It was introduced in the US as a 1983 1/2 model, and was a 'benchmark' automobile for other sports cars to be compared to for the nex…t decade. (MORE)
An infant seat (in which the infant lies on his or her back with his head toward the front of the vehicle) will fit behind the passenger seat provided that the passenger seat is neither leaning back too far nor slid back too far. This coule make the passenger seat uncomfortable for a tall passenger.… (MORE)
Answer . with the ignition on, but not the engine. press the switch that rises it up and the clips come off the back. then you unclip the front ones and push it out
Porsche 944HP . OK, I'm haven't used these number for a a little while however the Porsche 944 Turbo was produced with two different HP numbers as follows:. Porsche 944 Turbo (85-88)-217. 881/2 - 91 -253. During the 1988 model year Porsche produced two 944 Turbo versions, the 'normal version' …and a model they called the 'Turbo S'. The Turbo S became the standard model from 1989.. 0-100km/h time somewhere between 5-6 seconds. (MORE)
the turbo was $29,500. the 944 was just under 20k for the 1981 model, so im guessing 22-24k for the base in '86
there is a leaver on the left had side of the car at the footwell. this is the hood release.
like any other car take out the old one, there is small holes on each corner of the front plate you push those in and it comes out, then disconnected.. unless there is the right harness on the radio you are putting in you must cat the wires and connect them together, u can use a double A battery to… determine which speakers are located where. Remember to use good Isulating method so that you dont cause a shortcut.. good luck (MORE)
This is a tricky question, because the transaxle is made of several parts, on a 944 there are2 "stub" axels on each end of the transaxle which are held on by i believe 6 bolst to the CV joint itself, which will come apart into several peices, easiest way to ess with this is to just replace the peice… between he stub axles, depending on your location i have the number to a Porsche junkyard, or eBay is another option to do it cost efficiently.

the oil drain plug is located at the bottom of the sump under the engine. If memory serves you will need a hex bit to remove it.
on early 944s - motor mounts, rear hatch power release, expensive timing belt replacement costs (essential), hard to find a clock that works, sunroof motor gear, and no cup holders
Gotta be careful. With the key in the 'on' position (don't need to actually start the car), turn on the headlights so they pop up. Then, turn the key off so the lights turn off, but don't turn the knob back off, as they will pop back down. There is a screw at the bottom of the black assembl…y around the light itself. Remove the screw, and the black thing should pop off. Now, there are three screws you need to remove from the retaining ring around the light itself. One at the top, and two on either side at the bottom, evenly spaced. Remove these three, and make sure you don't accidentally take out the 2 aiming screws, or you will have to take it to a shop and have the headlights re-aligned so you don't blind people. Remove the retaining ring, and the headlight should basically just slide right out. Remove the connector from the back (the whole big bulb thing is the light, there's no little bulb like newer cars) and connect the new light. Fit the new light back it, there are 3 little recessed dips in the hole where the light goes, and 3 tabs on the light itself that fit right in. Make sure the light is rotated correctly, if it's upside down or something it wont illuminate the road properly. Now put the retainer ring back over the light, and screw it back in. Put the black plastic thing back on, make sure it slides into the proper borders with the light cover, and screw it back together. Repeat for the other side. Turn the key back to the "On" position, and make sure the lights work. All Done! By the way, the light type for a Porsche 944 is H6024, and any variant of H6024 (H6024ST, etc) (MORE)
I really think you should have done some research before purchasing this unique sports car. The transmission (or technically, the transaxle) is located in between the rear wheels, the the engine up front. There is no dipstick. The fluid is check through the filler plug in the transaxle, it is also f…illed here. I recommend buyinga a haynes amanual. Keep an eye on the water pump and timing belt as well. If either of these fail, you will have very expensive problems. All leaks should also be fixed immediatly. If coolant leaks into the engine through the oil lines, kiss you engine goodbye. Lack of lubrication siezes the crank bearings. cale (MORE)
The jacking points for the 944 are under the sill. if you look at the sill closely you will see a diamond shape pointing out where the jack should sit. be sure to use this point as you could buckle the floor or worse, put the jack right through the floor! it's the one point if you want the front or …rear wheels jacked up.

Red line is 6500. Half of that is 3250 rpm. Drive in top gear at 3250 and see how fast you are going. Then multiply that speed by 2. That's the theoretical top speed with no wind and flat ground. The Porsche owners manual shows their top speed figures a little lower than redline. My gps shows higher… end speeds to be quite accurate. Driving at speeds over 140 mph is a different world from your daily commute. Cars travelling at 60mph will be like parked cars in the road for an 80mph car. Without being race-equipped chances of survival with a mishap.... pretty low. (MORE)
Front or rear bumper? if its the front, all the lamps have to come out then remove the bolts from underneath.
\ngo to the store buy yourself some h3 bulbs then grab yourself a star screwdriver and take the two screws out from the front
There isn't a turbo kit due to the high compression of the N/A engine. There is however a low pressure supercharger kit by Speed Force racing.
WaY ToO expensive!, sell your NA 944 and buy a 944 turbo. Unless you find a COMPLETE 944 turbo engine with the mounts, turbo, the complete long block, the computer with electric harness and all sensors, air filter and intake system, fuel distribution system... for some reason, the clutch housing is …different too. You will even preferably have to convert your whole front end to the turbo style to provide a proper airflow to your intercooler, also to note, the turbo exhaust system is completely different (wastegate, catalytic converter side pipe, bigger muffler...). The 944 turbo have bigger brakes and there is a heat guard for the master cylinder (MORE)
Which temperature switch, there are 2. One is the DME temp switch and that one is close to the water inlet at the top of the motor and usually has a blue connector. The dash sensor is located in the middle of the block under the intake manifold and is a single wire sensor.
A total of 113,070 944s were made between 1982 and 1989, with 56,921 being exported to the United States.
I'd go to http://www.clarks-garage.com/ I recently removed my fuel pump apparently for no good reason, and put it back.
The fuel filter is located at the back, near the fuel tank. It is above the rear axle on the right hand side.
\nyou will need to get yourself some 6024 bulbs a star screwdriver and about 15 minutes ok open your hood and locate the manual motor for the headlights start to screw them up but be careful because when you get about half way up they will pop up on their own there is an electrical connection that y…ou have to pull out when they reach their full range of motion unscrew the screw at the bottom to take the black facing off and then take it off to show the actual housing three screws and your home free (MORE)
Your 944 Surge because of a lack of fuel pressure on high speed, between 120km/h up to 215km/h. I replaced my fuel pump and problem solved.
Loosen the nuts on either side of the adjuster rod, then rotate the adjuster rod to pivot the PS pump. Note that one side of the adjuster rod is a reverse thread so that it spreads or closes the gap instead of just moving one direction of the other.
Its behind the rear wheel arch, gently jack up the car at the rear and the pump is located under the boot behind the wheel arch.
There are two of them, and they are located on the clutch bell housing that is bolted to the rear of the motor. They are held down with 10mm bolts that can be accessed if you stand on the drivers side of the engine bay and feed an extension with a swivel down past the wiring on the firewall.
That very well may be for the hazard switch. Try it and see if the lights blink when the button is depressed.
I bought my 1988 944 Turbo and it was using a lot of oil--about 1 liter per 500 miles. I changed the oil and put in a recommended Valvoline race oil (VR1) 20w50. It almost completely stopped using excessive oil--only about 1 liter every 1000 miles or more. This is factory spec (1-1.5 liters every 10…00 miles is normal usage). Apparently, these older motors love the heavier stuff. And the race oil has this chemical that's good for the seals (not sold in "off-the-shelf" reg oil). I'm guessing the previous owner was running some modern, light oil like 5w30 synthetic. Good luck, Dan (MORE)
there is a switch....if that has gone out there is a manual override located in your engine bay. at the very front left side ther is a black rubber boot. remove and ture the knob until they close
I have seen anything from a buick turbocharged V-6 to a 500+ hp ls corvette engine
Pull the button in the foot well then pull the hood up, the catch is in the centre of the hood, if you mean the tailgate then get in touch and this is easy too.
No. Far too many of them were produced for them to be considered exotic. The same is true of almost every Porsche, save extremely rare cars like the 959 and Carrera GT.
The sensor reads from the flywheel so look to the back of the engine or the front of the transmission bellhousing to find it.
There are 2, one on each side. The one by the exhaust usually goes out first due to heat.
follow the middle wire on your distrbuter cap. or are you looking for the dme? that's under the passenger floor carpet.
In the older cars it's in the engine bay above the passenger footwell. In the newer ones it's in the left hand side of the boot.
I believe the last time the 944 was made was in 1991 which would make it an R-12 unless it has already been retrofitted for R-134a.
that kinda yellowish plastic tank with a cap on it ? under the hood on the drivers side?
It is under the passenger side floor board. To get to it, remove the floor mat. The carpet is attached to the floorboard by velcro at the top. Pull the carpeting down, and the plywood floorboard is visible. There are 2 Philips head screws, and two large flathead plastic screws. Remove them, and pull… on the plywood. You will find the DME (fuel injection) and KLR (ignition) control units attached to a metal frame below. (MORE)
you see that radiator hose that has a larger end ? that larger end is the pump.not a easy fix and the timing belt and balence shaft belt are attached. special tools required. good luck.
Unlatch the two roof latches above driver and passenger. Partially press the roof switch on the dash to unlock the bolt. Push roof up manually. You will need to exit the car and reach your arm under the roof to push it open. It is quite heavy and needs some strength to carefully lift it away from th…e car. It is stored in boot when not in use - on my model Porsche supplied a very snug-fitting zip cover to avoid it getting scratched. To refit roof ensure the wind deflector at front of roof opening is verical then carefully place roof onto the deflector before lowering into place. This also requires some strength. I think it would be difficult for a person of slight stature. Finally reclip latches and press roof open switch to test ok. (MORE)
they get surpisingly good gas milage considering that they are thatold, around 30ish mpg. better than some of the current "hybrids"
The lux model had it as standard, the turbo didnt have it as it reduced chassis stiffness too much. So Porsche say.
really? what drive shaft. its a shift tube for the trans. trans is in the rear of the car. its called a trans axle. trans shifts the cv joints which turns the wheels. so you never have to take down the shift tube for no reason theirs a long steel rod inside that tube. that comes from your shifter to… the trans.

I know in the us kids are not allowed to be out of a car seat unless the car is parked.
Theres only 2 reasons a car wont start. No fuel or no spark. Check for fouled plugs, damaged distributor, broken spark leads, blocked fuel filter, blocked fuel lines or faulty injectors.
The clutch is located behind the engine, just before the torque tube leading to the gearbox.
RPM stands for Revolutions Per Minute and refers to the speed of the engine. for example at idle the engine will be doing approximately 800RPM. This means that that crank shaft revolves 800 times in one minute, the maximum RPM pf a 944 is about 6500, meaning the maximum allowable amount of revolutio…ns per minute is 6500 before you run the risk of damaging the engine. That equates to over 100 complete rotations of the crank shaft every second. (MORE)
There are many options for selling a Porsche 944. Amazon auctions and eBay have proven to be surprisingly lucrative options for selling classic cars, and even Craigslist has good success rates.
