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

I had a socalled porsche guru replace my timing belt now it wont start and when it does it just backfires and then dies. I am purchasing a 1987 Porshe 924 - I have had bad experience in the past with belts breaking in other newer cars so I feel that it is a must to replace the timing belt. How dificult is this job -- where can i get instructions?

Timing chain on 2005 Porsche Cayenne


I am not a Cayenne guy but first and formost the timing belt on Porsche's absolutely must be changed every 60k miles or sooner and the water pump every other time, just for good measure. A rough idle after 1 hour driving does not sound like a timing belt issue to me. I would call/attend a local Porsche Club of America (PCA) event and ask around as to who the best mechanic/shop owner is. In the mean time, IF it is the timing belt DON'T DRIVE IT!!!!! if the belt breaks while the engine is running, you may as well buy a new engine! Get very familiar with everything Porsche and your vehicle will last and love you for a very long time. If you don't it will destroy you and your pocket book!

I hope this gets you in the right direction!

2002 Porsche Boxster - had squealing coming from


Mine did that off and on for a month with no other problems then it started making a loud suction noise and the check engine light came on. I took it to the dealer and they said the "oil separator" needed to be replaced.
After the repair I never heard the squealing again.

87' porsche 944 timing belt change and calibration. HELP!


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

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
