2 Answers

Hi again... My 1987 Porsche' 944 is up and running like a top...However I have, of course, one more problem! Seem that I have a leak from the rear of the Cam Cover gasket. So here's the question...What is needed and how is it fixed OR is this something that is better left up to a professional mechanic? Thanks again, You guys are the best and have helped me to once again enjoy driving my Porsche'. I'm looking forward to your answer.

    Thanks for your solution, but would like to have another opinion. I do have several Torque wrenches.

    Gonna give this a look... then see if I think I can manage it. Will let you know in a couple of days how it's going. Thanks!

    This solution is very helpful. I have just one problem...I cannot read the Diagram and instructions you included from a manual (Too small to read) Also If you could provide step by step instruction to the removal of items that are in the path of getting to the cam cover I would greatly appreciate the info. Once again, Thanks.

Hi,

This can be done by yourself, its just a case of removing the rocker cover gasket and applying some bead sealant check the below pics and information.

If you mean wheel bearings! You can check this by jacking up the wheel and grabbing the wheel top and bottom and moving it back and forth, if you feel movement then the bearings are worn!

Engine stalls as if out of gas


I had a problem like that. Turned out to be the DME relay. Very common problem on that model. Some say you should never leave your house without a spare. Part is cheap, $30. It is located in the fuse box. Try that first. All other problems will be more intrusive and cost more.
Good luck.
