Question about 1986 Porsche 944
1986 944 turbo, 165,000 miles, standard transmission; Throttle drops out sometimes only during driving conditions. When I am driving, the throttle will cut out completely, wont restore untill I put the accelerator back to idle position, then throttle returns to normal, sometimes recurring again after I accelerate again. This happens alot. Engine idles fine, and has never cut out at idle. Car was stored outside for many years. Any ideas would be helpful. 1986 944 turbo w/80,000 miles. Starts & runs great at idle and up to 1,600 rpm. Frequently will not go past this speed. When it's coaxed to go past 1600 it runs perfect, up to 6,500. When rpm's drop below 2500 it resumes the problem and doesn't want to go past 1600 again. It is getting progressively worse and very difficult to get it past 1600. It doesn't seem to be sensitive to temperature. This car is a daily driver and is in outstandingly good condition.
I gave my 944 turbo which had a idle problem. checked all the vacuum
attatchments, made sure all were connected. Checked coolant level.
Then cleaned the fuel pressure (part). ie the fuel rail attatchment, with carburettor cleaner then sprayed dry lube into it. Its running like a dream again. This part i am talking about has 3 inlets and is at the front of the fuel rail, when you take it out fuel runs out of it for a little while.
Hope this fixes the problem.

I have exactly the same problem now. How did you manage to fix it?

I would start with the TPS, and if it doesn't solve it then the AFM would be the problem.
