SOURCE: The headlights on my 1987

The head light switch.If this switch is got weak the internal switch wirings get overheated and this malfunctions the headlight.In this case the head light switch switch needs to be replaced. The car's headlights comes from the car's electrical system, which includes the car battery and car alternator. When the headlight switch is activated inside the car, an electrical circuit is opened, which means that electricity begins to flow between the headlight switch and the car's electrical system.And this turns on the headlight.When you turn of the head light by deactivating the switch.The electric gets close and headlight turns off.This is the function.In most of the cases the headlight switch gets short and this creates this types of problem which you mentioned.But in some cases the head light switch is checked ok,but the real problem is to the part where head light bulb is connected.Inside the bulb connector there is metal earthing,to which the bulb end connects and it receives power.But if the earthing gets loose or the bulb gets loose or some dust gets between the bulb and the bulb holding connector then this causes the problem.Turn off the car,disconnect the negative battery wire for safety reasons,then remove the headlight bulbs and clean the internal socket of the head light when the bulb connects.Then reinsert the bulb and see if that is making any difference.But if same problem is noticed then its faulty headlight switch.Which is causing the problem. -------------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

87 porsche 924s. Cor overheating at idle. Coolant and oil look normal. No smoke. No heat coming out of vents. Replaced thermostat. Still overheats. Seems to have flow but not sure. It seems the heater core...

run the car with the radiator cap off or the expansion tank cap off, which is part of coolant system and is pressurized, not to be confused with an overflow bottle which is not pressurized, and the heater on high. drain some coolant to allow for expansion. look/listen for bubbles. air from the vents should get hot. give it about 20 minutes

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
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.
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.
