Question about 2002 Porsche 911

1 Answer

I have a 1998 996, problem started when the serpentine belt came off and at that instance the engine stopped and would not restart. Fixed serpentine belt problem. Went to start engine it backfired through the airbox then reved to about 3000rpm, revs then dropped and the engine stalled. Tried to restart but wouldn,t fire. Now all it does is turns over but will not fire. I know this shouldn,t be related but for some reason this all occurred after turning TC off and now also TC light remains on as though it cannot be switched off. Do you have any answers. Thanks

I just had my timing belt and water pump changed now the belt sounds like it's squealing grinding every time I start up engine but when I start driving it stops should I worry about this?


The timing belt is inside the engine, so has no relevance. The water pump being changed has no relevance.

The serpentine belt which drives the alternator and AC is slipping and that causes the screeching. As soon as the belt warms up a bit because of the friction, it starts to grip and the screeching stops. You can do one of two things, get the garage to tighten the belt, or buy some 'serpentine belt re-conditioner' which cleans the belt and is a bit sticky, so it helps it to grip. You can get it from automotive spares shops. You just spray it onto the inner service of the belt at one of the V-Pulleys with the engine running.

Do serpentine belts stretch?


serpentine belts do not stretch as you describe because the tensioner keeps them tight so they just break. It is probably hard and cracking and need s a new one so try that first . The ac has nothing to do with the belt as it will be a low gas problem from leaks and the heat is a coolant problem or a control problem from inside the car.. The grinding sound may be a pulley bearing or some other bearing failing. Why don't you take it to a repair shop to find all the faults so that you can work out how much it is going to cost.

How stop the serpentine belt from fallen off the tensioner on a 1993 town & country. Is there a aftermarket pulley wheel for that tensioner to replace the flaw problems.


My 1991 Grand Caravan did that too. It had the 3.3L engine just the the T&C (91-93). The tensioner was the problem, hit a puddle on the right side and you'd feel the power steering go and then right away the engine would start to heat up. I tried making the belt come off, but could never duplicate it, only splashing through puddles of rain or wet slush would do it. I never found a tensioner with shoulders on it, but a new one like the original fixed it.

Yes.
If you take the serpentine belt off, the engine may start.
But you may not have a working water pump without the belt.

No power steering, engine cut out but has restarted engine hot fan on, no warm air so take this as a belt problem?


The symptoms you have described sounds most like you had a serpentine belt break or fall off the pulley system (rare but possible).That is a fairly simple job to replace the serpentine belt,whether you replace it yourself or have a professional do the job it isn't a costly repair, providing that is the only problem.There is a serpentine belt routing label under the hood, usually on the plastic piece that goes across the front of the engine compartment near the hood latch release.There is a spring loaded belt tensioner that holds tension on the serpentine belt(labeled on the routing label) rotate the tensioner against the spring pressure, rout the belt according to the routing label, then slowly release tensioner against the new belt and that should complete the installation.Hopefully that is the solution. Good luck !

It just died while i was driving it.


Sounds like the serpentine belt (AKA fan belt) may have broken or come loose. You'd know this if you saw any lights come on when your car stopped accelerating.

Next, it could be the alternator went bad while you were driving, then when the battery went dead, the fuel pump shut off and you had no more fuel running to the engine.

Finally, (as far as I can think of with out diagnosing the car myself) it may be the timing chain/belt may have broken. I had a 1994 Chevy Cavalier with this problem, driving down the road, everything's fine, I heard a little "pop"and the engine died and I couldn't get it restarted.

When you are driving at a higher speed, the transmission will stay in gear (if you're still in drive) and rotate the engine (although the engine is no longer firing) until you slow down to a speed where the trans realizes there's no more power and it disengages the torque converter to prevent damage to the engine.

So, 3 things to have your mechanic check in order (or yourself if you like) serpentine(fan) belt, alternator, timing chain/belt. The serpentine belt is on the front of the engine, if it's front wheel drive the engine is turned 90 degrees and the belt is on either the passenger or driver's side. The alternator (probably needing to be tested at an auto parts store) is near the top of the engine, attached to the serpentine belt with wires (not hoses or tubes) coming out of the back and if you look in the holes around the alternator case, it looks like an electric motor. The timing chain/belt is usually an internal part and will need to be found with the manuals listed above or a professional will have to fix this problem. All cars and engines have it in different places, but this is what times the intake and exhaust valves to open and close at the right time to keep the engine running.

If you are still having problems, reply to this thread so we can help you figure out exactly what's going on and we'll know what we've tried already. I hope this helps. Good luck and don't forget to rate!
