I just tried starting my 1986 Porsche 944 its been sitting in storeage for 3 years and havent started it since, and now i bled the gas line to get rid of old gas and drained the tank and put more gas in and changed the oil but the car wont turn over without starter fluid, i lready know that the fuel pump is working since i bled the lines out but i cant figure this one out, any ideas?

    ok we took off the nut on the engine and when we turn the key, gas comes out of, so it cant be the the fuel pump, we used starter fluid to get the car to turn over but wont hold long, we took the hose off and spraid started fluid into the throttle and the car would turn over but only for the starter fluid, its if like its not getting gas, could it be the injectors?

    I did what you instructed for me to do last night before i posted this problem, but yes we did that, gas came out the line we let alot of gas come out because it was sitting for too long and we put new gas inside the car

You may not have gas in the fuel rail. when you run the system dry or let it sit a long time you could get that area empty. Try just trying to start car very fast without trying to start it. What you are doing is pushing the gas into the fuel everytime you start the car. The fuel pump will only run for a second everytime you turn key until the car is actually started. have you checked the injectors? They could be rusted or dried out. Just some idea's. Let me know how it works out for ya.

Its the fuel pump relay, take the petrol in hose off (just over the air inlet manifold) and start it up, if fuel comes out then its not the fuel pump or relay, when you say starter fluid what do u mean?

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

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.

1986 944 Turbo wont start.Just died on me going around corner,will start with starting fluid.


It sounds like you don't have sufficient fuel.
Do you hear the fuel pump turned on when you put the key on?
If it is not, need to check the fuel pump relay.
Jump wire at the fuel pump relay to to turn it on to see if Fuel pump is working
Need to check if the fuel delivered to fuel distributor in spec.
Jump wire your relay 60s to check how much gas delivered to the fuel distributor, by disconnecting the gas input at fuel distributor and catching fuel in a calibrated glass container. The gas quantity ml divided by 60 sec to have a flow ml/s. If this is not meeting spec then change the fuel pump. Good luck.

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.
