Timing belts on 944s NEED to be changed every 30k miles. It can be a challenging job. I would recommend a shop. Balance belts, rollers and usually a water pump replacement is recommended at the same time. Cost, approximately $1400. Parts can be purchased cheap, but labor is 8-9 hrs.
If you decide to do it yourself you will need a specific timing belt tensioner gauge tool.
Good luck

Sorry to hear the 944 Timing Belt broke, You should get the Compression of each Cylinder Checked first 99% your Valves will be bent, meaning a Cylinder Head overhaul New Valves, crack testing etc, or try and source a second hand Cylinder Head.

HELP...1987 944 wont start afer replacing timing belt

Hi, You need to get your timing belt checked. Dont attempt to start the engine until your timing pullys are reset because if your cam is set wrong it WILL cause valve damage.If it is allready correctly set then i suggest you test the compresion in case damage was caused when belt was fitted. Hope all works out ok 4 you.All the best.Phil
