Does a 1983 porsche 944 2.5L have a fuel shut off switch if so where is it located


I would jump the fuel pump relay first. If it starts replace the relay. Or fix it. Bad diode in it. $50 compared to 50 cents. Done many of them.

Am rebuilding the engine on my Porsche 944s 16v and cannot find details of the Cylinder Head Torque settings.


The torque angle tightening method is now valid for all engines of types 924S, 944, 944S and 944 Turbo including all earlier engines from start of 944 production. When making repairs, the following parts must be used:
Cylinder Head Gaskets
Part Number 944 104 374 14 - 924S, 944, 944S Part Number 951 104 374 01 - 944 Turbo only
Cylinder Head Nuts (12 mm high)
Part Number 999 076 028 02 - all types
Washers
Part Number 944 104 229 00 - all types
Tightening Specifications to Torque Angle Method
Tightening is done in 3 steps:
Step 1: 20 N-m (15 ft. lbs.) Step 2: 90 degrees (114 turn) Step 3: 90 degrees(1/4 turn) Important:
Sequencing must be kept for each step. Threads and bearing surfaces of nuts must be lightly lubricated with oil prior to installation. Washers must not turn while tightening. Create a reference mark if necessary.
Note:
The 12 mm high cylinder head nuts might protrude above the studs slightly on engines produced prior to Feb. 1986. In addition, new head nuts must be used at each repair.

I just bought a 1985 porsche 944. I just put in a


Find and remove the horn fuse or relay to keep the horn from blasting and attempt to start the vehicle. If it starts inspect the clearance between the horn switch and its ground contact. If there is a factory alarm, which I doubt, that has been reset by disconnecting the battery/battery going dead then call your local Porsche dealer for additional advice.

my 944 porsche just stopped while i was driving it??? it had been running great all day. It didn't make a sound just stopped running. It has a new battery. it won't start, the engine won't turn over. I just lost my job so this couldn't have happened at a worse time. I love my 944 and bought it new in 1984, should I just get rid of it?


have you tried jump starting it?does the starter engage and try to turn the engine over?it's possible your alternator is not working properly and your battery is in a discharged state,could this be the reason you replaced the battery?try turning the engine over by hand to make sure it rotates freely.
