Question about 1987 Porsche 924
The crank and reference sensors on these cars rarely fail, but they are located at the very back of the engine in a bracket that actually holds them in position to read the teeth on the top of the flywheel. If you have no spark, the first thing to check is if you have power at the coil. Did you check for spark at the coil wire or a plug wire? It is very common for the little screw that holds the rotor on the distributor shaft to fall out and then the rotor falls off. If you have spark at the coil wire, this is likely what has happened. The second most common cause would be the DME relay. This is the relay that controls power to the coil and the fuel pump. They go bad all the time.
