Question about 1986 Porsche 944
Locally there is an 86 944 for sale. It is not the turbo model, and from what I can gather she has a few problems. The car has sat undriven for three plus years. The seller says it will turn over with a starter fluid, but stalls a few seconds later. Seller says it seems to be a fuel delivery problem. Also says before it was put up it would not hold a charge. The easy fixes would be that it needs a new fuel line and pump...but how much would that be to fix? and maybe an alternator?? What advice can you give me to look for when I get out to see it...and does anyone know what it may caost to fix these issues? I don't mind some repairs, but want to aviod pitfalls if I can.
I will be a first time porsche owner, but have owned some MG's and am fairly comfortbale doing minor repairs. Oh, he only wants a thousand bucks for the car.....so....
Thanks for any help!!!
A funny old saying is the most expensive things in life are a free boat and a cheap Porsche.
The cost can vary for labor but for parts check out www.rockauto.com and the normal parts houses.
It will be a money pit, even if you do ALL the labor. If this is a 2nd car and you have free money to play with then ok. But it is also not a fast car. Its more of a Lux Sprts coupe.
