What is the best oil for my car?

Hi,

It is a 1986 Porsche 944 auto with 110,000 miles. How often should I replace oil, filter etc? Anything else I should be aware of that is an easy fix / prevention?

Many Thanks, Richard

1986 porsche 944 dont pass ca smog running too lean


Probably Nox too high. Can also be engine too hot. Last time cooling system serviced? Also can be carbon in the combustion chamber ignites fuel too soon. Fuel delivery system and all sensors may be a problem. Bad or corroded connections can contribute to bad behavior of the ECU.

Knocking noise Porsche 944


sounds like it could be "knocking from the cam". i would throw a thing of SeaFoam or Marvel Mystery Oil in the oil slot. my knocking went away in 100 miles. the stuff works wonders. Good luck. My knocking used to be very loud the higher the rpms.

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

1987 944 porsche transmission and differntial fluid


I'm assuming that this is a 5 speed stick car because you mentioned 80-90 oil. This car has a transaxle, not a a separate transmission and differential. The transaxle houses the transmission gears and the differential all in one housing. There is a drain plug on the bottom a fill plug on the side. Here's a link to one of the best do-it-yourself 944 sites on the web. Click on the "garage shop manual" link in the sidebar and scroll down to "transaxle fluid change".
