Question about 1992 Porsche 968

1 Answer

92 Porsche 968 will not start

1992 Porsche 968, used very infrequently. It would not start, and my brother in law replaced the battery, fuel pump and filter, and then replaced the DME sensor. It started and ran for about two days, but now again refuses to start. I can't tell whether I'm dealing with a fuel delivery problem or a lurking electrical problem.

Any thoughts?

84 porsche 944 replaced new spark plugs and wires,cap,rotor,coil,emc,DME relay,fuel pump, reference speed sensors, new battery, and still no start. Any suggestions is what to do next?


Not much left unchanged is there and no doubt you have done compression testing on all 4 cylinders as well. (If not you need to). I assume it is cranking over normally with the starter motor but not firing.

I would try one of the Porsche Owners Forums for this as one of the other 944 owners there should be able to help..... Like this one..................

Sounds like a fuel filter problem, or fuel pump. Also have you ever had the injectors checked? I had the problem you've described and found both the fuel filter needed replaced, and the injectors cleaned and adjusted.

What year is this?

When you say it won't start you mean it doesn't crank? If it won't crank then the relay to the fuel pump won't get a signal from the ECM to run. (depending on the model)

Have you had the battery out or has it run down recently?

Need more history and information.. Thanks

How to change fuel filter on 2005 nissan armada


I would start by pulling the fuel pump fuse and starting the vehicle. This will get rid of the pressure on the fuel line. Once the vehicle will not start crank it over for about 10-15 seconds. Then the fuel filter is located under the brake booster on the drivers side. It has two hose clamps that hold it on. Remove the two hose clamps and replace the filter. Then install the fuel pump fuse. Turn the key to the on position and wait till you hear the fuel pump shut off. Turn the key off and repeat this step 3 times to build fuel pressure. Then you should be ready to go!

Where is that fuel filter


Removal & Installation Two types of filters are used, depending on the vehicle. Both are located between the rear axle and the fuel tank.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Unscrew the cover box.

  1. Remove the gas cap, fuel pump cover and pressure hoses.
  2. Loosen the screws and remove the filter. Remove the connecting plug from the old filter and install it on a new filter using a new gasket.
To install:
  1. Install a new filter in the direction of flow. Always replace the copper gaskets.
  2. Replace the attaching screws.
  3. Install the pressure hoses, pump cover and gas cap. Torque the banjo fittings to 80 inch lbs. (9 Nm).
  4. Install the fuel filter in the holder by positioning it in the center of the transparent holder. Be sure the plastic sleeve between the fuel filter and fuel pump is installed. Galvanic corrosion may occur in cases of direct contact between these components.
  5. Replace the cover box and check for proper sealing.
