I recently had timing belt and water pump changed on my 1988 944 with 1985 engine. Engine now has no oil pressure and engine rattles like crazy. Mechanic is lost on this one. Any help?


The crankshaft pulley bolt is loose. The crank bolt was removed to do the timing belt and was not tightened enough when the pulley was replaced. It must be very, very tight because it clamps the impeller of the oil pump inside the front cover of the engine. The impeller is not keyed to the crank and it relies solely on the clamping pressure of the bolt.

The serpentine belt and power stering belt won't stay oon they come off as soon a you start the car, 1985 Porsche 944


while the belt is off, engine off, check for a frozen pulley-except for the crankshaft, one is probably locked up or makies a lot of noise/wobbles when turned by hand.. Also, look at the pulleys and see if they 'line up' by looking at them from the side.

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.

1985 944 porsche speedometer stop working


There is a gear in the speedo that breaks. This is plastic gear on a metal shaft. The last fix I did was to remove speedo and open it up. I super glued the cracked gear to the shaft because I was unable to find a new one. It worked again with no future problems. I hope this helps.

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"
