It is a common problem for the seals in the oil cooler to leak and allow water into the oil. I'd check this first, there should be a procedure online somewhere. Try googling "clarks garage"

Find and remove the horn fuse or relay to keep the horn from blasting and attempt to start the vehicle. If it starts inspect the clearance between the horn switch and its ground contact. If there is a factory alarm, which I doubt, that has been reset by disconnecting the battery/battery going dead then call your local Porsche dealer for additional advice.

SOURCE: 1986 Porsche 944. Instruments not working

Sounds like a possible fuse problem. Have you checked your fuses yet. If not look in your owners manual to see which fuse(s) control your instrument panel, or anything else you are having trouble with. Keep in mind, if a short did occur for some reason, more than one fuse may be blown. When i accidental crossed two door lock wires, i blew 6 fuses, some of which were not even related to the wires i crossed. Hope this helps

Am rebuilding the engine on my Porsche 944s 16v and cannot find details of the Cylinder Head Torque settings.


The torque angle tightening method is now valid for all engines of types 924S, 944, 944S and 944 Turbo including all earlier engines from start of 944 production. When making repairs, the following parts must be used:
Cylinder Head Gaskets
Part Number 944 104 374 14 - 924S, 944, 944S Part Number 951 104 374 01 - 944 Turbo only
Cylinder Head Nuts (12 mm high)
Part Number 999 076 028 02 - all types
Washers
Part Number 944 104 229 00 - all types
Tightening Specifications to Torque Angle Method
Tightening is done in 3 steps:
Step 1: 20 N-m (15 ft. lbs.) Step 2: 90 degrees (114 turn) Step 3: 90 degrees(1/4 turn) Important:
Sequencing must be kept for each step. Threads and bearing surfaces of nuts must be lightly lubricated with oil prior to installation. Washers must not turn while tightening. Create a reference mark if necessary.
Note:
The 12 mm high cylinder head nuts might protrude above the studs slightly on engines produced prior to Feb. 1986. In addition, new head nuts must be used at each repair.

86 Porsche 944 Smoke coming from heads


This could be just old oil and dirt getting hot for the first time in a long time. My 928 will also do this for a while if not driven through the winter, but clears up after a while . To be safe I would clean the area that you see the oil at, and then see if when you start it more oil collects. It could also just be comming from the cam housing(looks like valve cover) check it out well, these are tough engines.

944 cuts off after 5 min.


Sounds like fuel relay located in fuse/relay box. This is a common problem on the 944, always good idea to carry a spare.

May be your engine temp sensor which adjusts your idle when the engine is cold and as it warms up.
