You will not be able to hear the fuel pump on that model. First you have to determine if you get fuel and have spark. If it is a fuel problem, replace the DME relay first. Very common. They act up and fail without warning. Part is cheap and located in the fuse box. Next would be the fuel pump.
If it is spark related it may be the Flywheel Reference Sensors. There are two and the cost about $100 each.

Good Luck.

Wont start


Check you can hear the fuel pump running with ignition on, remove a plug lead from the spark plugs and hold I cm away from top of spark plug with insulated pliers while someone cranks the engine there should be a clear spark between lead end and plug top, if not then most likely the ECU is faulty.

Hi, my 2.5liter 86 porsche 944 nds the plugs to the distributer properly arranged. my brother messed them up.


the firing order is 1-3-4-2, it has to be in the 1-3-4-2 order starting at some point. I don't remember exactly if this one has it, but nearly all distributer caps have a 1 on the cap so you know where to start. I took magic marker and labeled each cylinder for the cap. The spark plug boots cover it up. Looking at the cap while standing in front of the bumper it is: 4 2 3 1 hope this helps

Cranks but wont start


a host of reasons,
  • check if you have a spark buy removing ht lead from spark plug and holding near metal pat of engine while cranking, use insulated tool to hold lead, if spark thats ok
  • remove spark plug after lang cranking and smell if gas is present or plug is wet, if wet you are geting fuel
  • then ask again once you know what is not happening
  • has it electronic ignition
  • has it fuel injection or carbs
