Porsche 944 Turbo won't go into gear when motor is running.

Porsche has been garaged without driving for a year.  Now, when car is running, I cannot shift gears. (I can when car is not running.)  Any ideas??

Hi mate. I'm no Porsche expert but the most common diagnosis would be clutch failure. If you can shift (even some) gears with the engine off then this would be plausible. Before looking at the complete clutch, try the master and/or slave cylinder, it's more likely to be the master. Pop the bonnet and check the level of brake fluid in the reservoir, there is no "clutch fluid", it's just brake fluid. If it's below the minimum line, top it up then see if it engages gear. Get it checked out, but tell the mechanic your theory, he'll soon confirm it if it is.

1987 944 porsche transmission and differntial fluid


I'm assuming that this is a 5 speed stick car because you mentioned 80-90 oil. This car has a transaxle, not a a separate transmission and differential. The transaxle houses the transmission gears and the differential all in one housing. There is a drain plug on the bottom a fill plug on the side. Here's a link to one of the best do-it-yourself 944 sites on the web. Click on the "garage shop manual" link in the sidebar and scroll down to "transaxle fluid change".
