924/944/968 Frequently Asked Questions

5.0 First-Time Buyer Questions

5.1 Where's the best place to find a used Porsche? How much should I pay?

You can get a feel for prices in a couple different places. Check with local Porsche dealerships, see whether they have any cars you're interested in. Check your local paper. In North America, pick up a copy of Excellence, or in the UK a copy of 911 and Porsche World. Both of these independent Porsche magazines carry classifieds. If you can get in touch with your local Porsche club, or find a good, local independent Porsche service shop, they can be an excellent source of referrals and information.

Should you go the extra length of looking in southern states for your car? You can find good, clean 924/944/968 cars just about anywhere. Because of their construction with galvanized metal, they don't rust. Many owners store them in winters, anyway.

5.2 What should I look for, do, or ask about, when considering a prospective car?

Complete maintenance records. Correcting one or two problems that the previous owner skipped can easily surpass any cost savings you may have received by buying a car that was not maintained regularly.

Find a nice car. If the car looks good and is well taken care of, the odds are the rest of the mechanical bits were well taken care of as well. Some models are rarer then others, but generally there are a great deal of water coolers out there. Take your time, and find a great one.

Pre-sale inspection. Unless you're a Porsche mechanic, you should invest the $75-100 to take your prospective car to one and have them look at it. This will give you an excellent idea of what sort of costs you will be incurring over the next year or so, or even if the car is worth buying at all. Consider having the car inspected by both a mechanic and a body shop. And consider this a first step in building a long-term relationship with the mechanic: even if you want to do most of the maintenance yourself, having a mechanic you know and trust to take care of the too-big jobs is a must.

5.2.1 What are the areas to look for?

There are several common failure points on the 924/944/968's. Start by visually inspect the car for obvious signs of accident damage. Accidents can lead to costly repairs on items that are not immediately visible. Check to make sure that all body panels line up correctly and that there is a consistent spacing between all panels. Look for signs of overspray on the underside of the car or in the engine bay. Look for differing texture ("orange peel") in the paint surface. Pros will use a paint depth gauge to look for consistency and signs of body filler ("bondo") repairs.

These cars also have problems with leaks in the hatch area, around the sunroof, and in the passenger footwell. Check around for water stains and rusting of metal parts. Lift up carpets where practical, check the rear cubbies, etc. Under the hood, look around the battery using a small flashlight for signs that battery acid has corroded through the pan.

Drive the car, and pay attention to how the engine idles, the amount of engine vibration present, and the amount of backlash present in the drivetrain in manual cars. These problems will be explained in detail in section 5.6.

5.3 How do I tell if the 944 I'm looking at is early or late 1985?

The 944 underwent a fairly major change in the middle of model year 1985 (MY85). You will frequently see cars made later in the year referred to as "eight-five and a half" models. Cars made through the first half of 1985 have the 924 instrument cluster. It's more boxy/squarish than the later design. The suspension arms on the early 944's were made of steel with replaceable ball joints. Later 944's and all 968's use aluminum arms with non-removable ball joints.

To identify the vehicle definitely, you can examine its VIN number. Early 1985 944's had a VIN series beginning with 94FN47, later cars began with 94FN45. The VIN tag is located on the driver's side windshield pillar, looking down from outside the car.

5.4 How do I tell if the 924 I'm looking at is a 924 or a 924S?

If the car rolled out in ‘82 or before (in Europe, that would be ‘85 or before), it is certainly a 924. If it is a ‘86 or ‘87 car, it is certainly a 924S. The 10th digit of the VIN would tell of the year.

If it is a 924 you are considering, remember that the 924 and the 924S are very different cars underneath the skin. The 924 has a 2.0 liter engine, and is relatively inexpensive to maintain. On the other hand, the 924S came with the same 2.5 liter engine and drivetrain as the early 944, and consequently shares the same maintenance issues as an early 944 (or worries, if it is an ill-maintained specimen).

It may not be easy to tell a 924 from a 924S by a visual check, particularly since owners who are "creative" in changing the badges and decals on their cars are not unheard of.

5.5 What is a 951? Is this some Porsche I haven't heard of before?

No, it's simply the factory designation for the 944 Turbo.

5.6 What are common failure modes, and how are hard/expensive are they to fix?

5.6.1 Timing Belt

For the 924S, 944, and 968 series cars, it's important to have both the cam timing and the balance shaft belts replaced and tensioned regularly. These models, as well as later 928 models, have what is know as an "interference engine." If the timing belt fails, pistons and valves will travel out of sequence with one another. The result of this is that pistons and valves will collide, valves will be bent, and you are then in for a very expensive repair

Tensioning the timing belt requires an expensive special Porsche tension gauge, the P9201, that costs about $500. A few hardy owners use the more traditional "by hand" method generally without any adverse affects. There are also a couple of aftermarket tools that are popular for checking belt tension. The general consensus is "better safe than sorry" – use the factory tensioning gauge.

1987 and later 944's have an automatic tensioning device built in that in theory allows you to perform this operation without the special gauge. However, the automatic tensioner has been known to produce incorrect settings. Moreover, Porsche found that the 944S2 suffered from cam timing belt slap when tensioned with only the automatic tensioner. The bottom line is that the P9201 tool should still be used on the 87 and later cars with the automatic tensioner

The belts should be changed at least every 45K miles. If a car your are considering for purchase does not have service records indicating that this has been done, allow for an extra $300 – $500 to have the belts changed.

The timing belt in a 924 is reported to be far less finicky than the 944 or 924S. Since the 2.0 engine does not have an interference design where the pistons and valves share space, a failure of the timing belt does not produce the kind of expensive collataral damage as in the case of the 944 or the 924S, viz. a piston hitting the open valves, necessitating an expensive engine rebuild. While the maintenance interval for the 924 timing belt is the same, the expensive tensioning tool is not needed.

5.6.2 Motor Mounts

If you have excessive vibration at idle, and the vibration disappears around 1200 RPM, one or more of your motor mounts may be bad. The mounts have been through several designs. When updating your mounts, make sure you're getting the newest version (p/n 951-375-042-04) from the 944 Turbo. The bolt lengths have also changed with the updated part, so check for updated hardware.

The right (exhaust side) mount takes the most punishment and usually goes first.

The repair is within the reach of the accomplished backyard mechanic, but requires some tools, skills and patience. Motor mounts may "look" OK and still be bad. The normal advice is to look for fluid leakage. However, usually the fluid has leaked and evaporated long ago. A better way to check the mounts is to fashion a [ shaped piece of stiff wire so that the points of the wire are 60 mm apart. Use this gauge to measure the distance between the top and bottom surfaces of the mounts. If it is less then the 60 mm, replace them. If you have an older 944 and it's vibrating, replacing the mounts will make you feel like you have a whole different car.

5.6.3 Water Pump

If you notice any noise or leaking from your water pump, it is probably bad and should be replaced right away. If the pump fails entirely, the fluid may leak on your belts and they will need to be replaced as well. If the pump seizes it will destroy the timing belt as well – which could lead to very expensive valve damage.

In the 924S, 944, and 968 series cars, the water pump replacement is particularly unpleasant because it requires pulling the timing and balance belts to get to it. You may want to consider replacing the belts at the same time. Changing the thermostat at this time is also a good idea as it's very difficult to get to otherwise. The water pump has been updated several times. At the time of writing, the current factory part numbers for the late style water pump are 951-106-021-10 (new), and 951-106-921-X (rebuilt). Water pumps generally come with a "core charge," which is a deposit that will be refunded to you when you return your old water pump to the vendor to be remanufactured.

Earlier cars that have not had their water pump updated will require the following update parts:

  1. 944-105-241-04 – roller, quantity 1
  2. 944-105-213-01 – guide, quantity 1
  3. 999-084-092-02 – nuts, quantity 2

If you update to the latest pump, you will also need the updated thermostat 944-106-019-00, otherwise you can use the old style thermostat 944-106-129-05. A word of caution: aftermarket rebuilt pumps may not be the bargain they appear to be, and some mechanics will refuse to even install a rebuilt pump because they've had so many fail. (See section 7.3 for information on removing the thermostat snap ring.)

Chilton's 1995 labor guide states the following for changing a water pump:

8.1 hrs. for 924S/944
8.7 hrs. for 951/944S2
6.5 hrs. for a 968

The 924 water pump is less expensive than its 944/924S/968 counterpart. (p/n 060 121 011, $87 at Euroselect). And again, it makes no sense at all to use a rebuilt unit.

When refilling the coolant/anti-freeze after replacement of the water pump, particular care needs to be taken to bleed the coolant system according to the procedure in the owners manual, or section 7.2. Use a phosphate-free anti-freeze that is compatible with aluminium engines. "Zerex-Extreme 450 phosphate-free" has been recommended by Porsche, as has the VW/AutoBahn anti-freeze.

5.6.4 Oil cooler seal leak

In the 924S, 944, and 968 series cars, the seals in the oil cooler will sometimes shrink due to age, changing oil types, etc. In 1987, Porsche redesigned the seal causing many failures. The production was not corrected until 1991. All models between 1987 and 1991 are extremely at risk for this failure. If your car hasn't been updated to the latest part keep a very close eye on your coolant and oil. When the seal fails, it allows oil to enter your cooling system, and coolant into your oil. If you check your oil and notice a chocolatey brown froth on your dip stick, or if you notice brown residue in your coolant over-flow tank, you should take it to the shop immediately and have the seals replaced. The radiator and coolant passages will need to be cleaned with a degreaser and the oil changed. It's also highly recommended that the lower-end bearings be replaced due to the accelerated wear caused by water in the oil. Liquid Shout is a good product to use in cleaning oil out of the coolant system.

The very early models (until 84) also had problems with the oil cooler seals failing. Replacement is easily accomplished, and the updated seal kit will cost around $30-$40.

The 924 does not have an oil/water heat exchanger.

5.6.5 Power Steering Fluid Reservoir Leaks

The original solid band-style clamps that hold the hoses onto the reservoir don't do their job very well. Replacing them with Zebra style conventional hose clamps tends to solve this problem and was recommended by Porsche in a service bulletin. Use the proper German hose clamps with rolled edges rather than hardware store hose clamps with flat edges. The latter tend, over time, to cut into the hose.

You may also need to replace the small flexible piece of hose (and clamps) that allows the power steering fluid return hose to go around the engine block and underneath the oil filter. The easiest way to check for a leak here is to raise the headlights so you can look down inside the nose of the car. The main reason for catching these problems early is that if power steering fluid leaks down onto your suspension arms it may rot out your ball joints. As of 1985.5 they can't be replaced individually, and the entire arm ($$$) must be replaced.

There is now an updated version of the fluid line that goes from the reservoir to the pump. The new version does not go around the oil filter and attach to the water pump, but rather straight from the reservoir to the pump. As mentioned before, fix this problem as soon as you notice it because it can lead to costly ball joint and steering rack repairs.

5.6.6 Hood and hatch shocks worn out

Harmless, but inconvenient. They can be replaced easily, they cost between $12 – 20 depending on where you buy.

5.6.7 Hatch electrical release non-functional

944 and 968 series cars have an electrical release for their rear hatch. The nylon piece that holds the cable sometimes breaks. This component is fairly easy to replace. The carpet can also interfere with the rotating shaft. If the hatch is not aligned properly the hatch catches will bind, not allowing the motor and associated cable to do its job.

On all cars, the hatch retaining pins can also become out of alignment, causing the release not to function. The pins are adjustable, but if they are lengthened too much they can allow the hatch to leak.

5.6.8 Power window motor mechanisms

If the channels become dirty or warped, the power window motors may become damaged and eventually burn out. If the motor sounds like it is straining, or makes grinding/lugging noises it will more than likely need to be replaced in the near future. Cleaning the channels and making sure the windows are properly aligned will prevent damage.

5.6.9 Idle Stabilizer

Gets gunked up and causes rough idle. Some owners have disassembled the idle stabilizer and successfully cleaned them up. On the 944 Turbo and 944S the intake manifold must be removed to access the stabilizer: this can be expensive in terms of labor. An updated part is available which is supposed to minimize the problem. It's manufactured by Bosch and replacement cost is approximately $175.00.

5.6.10 Fuel Injectors dirty

When the 944-series cars were new, Porsche Cars North America (PCNA) recommended that you use a product containing the Chevron Techron additive to keep injectors clean and fully functional. Since that time, major gasoline makers have improved their products to include similar detergents, and use of Techron is no longer necessary.

If you notice hard starting, rough idle, or weak acceleration you may want to try running a bottle of this additive to your next fill up of gas. If that doesn't help, companies such as Marren offer injector cleaning and calibration as a service.

5.6.11 Front wheel shimmy

A shimmy at around 70 mph on early 944's appears to be a very common problem. No one is sure why it exists, but it may have something to do with the front suspension's VW rabbit origins. A proper wheel balancing generally solves the problem.

5.6.12 Cruise Control Problems

Symptoms such as: doesn't set speed, speed fluctuates, speed increases, etc. are generally caused by a bad cruise controller. The control box is above the hood release catch inside the car. It looks like a long, thin, rectangular metal box. Apparently one or more components can go bad inside, which leads to all kinds of intermittent problems. This is not the only thing that can go wrong with the cruise control system, but is very common. If possible, have your mechanic or a friend with the same car swap boxes and see if it fixes your problem.

(Note: if anyone has information on repairing cruise control boxes, please let me know so I can add it to the FAQ.)

5.6.13 Worn/leaky heater valves caused damage to clutch

In its original location, the heater valve could leak onto the clutch. If not caught soon enough, the coolant could cause damage to the clutch making necessary expensive repairs.

The heater valve has been moved to a different location (above the oil filter) in later models. The retrofit can be done by a novice mechanic. New hoses must be ordered. The changeover occurred in 1987 for the 944S model.

5.6.14 Coolant tank expanding

Age and high temperature combine to make the coolant overflow tank swell, crack, and eventually fail. Replacing it before it fails entirely would be a very good idea. They run around $120 new.

5.6.15 Turbo Coolant Pump

This pump is supposed to run for 30 seconds after the car is shut off, circulating water through the turbocharger. You can hear it running if it is operating properly. The pump is assembled in two sections, with age and heat the motor shaft binds and stops working. The hoses at the bottom of the pump create stress and this can cause a misalignment of the motor shaft. Readjusting the pump housing in the pump clamp may unbind the pump. A replacement unit runs about $210.00, part number 951-606-130-01.

5.6.16 Cracks in old style Turbo exhaust manifolds (non-accordion type)

Under warranty PCNA replaced the non-bellowed type headers, when they cracked, with the improved accordion style. The factory changeover occurred sometime in 1987. If you have an '86 with cracked bellowed-type headers, a lot of complaining may get them replaced under the "hidden" warranty even if it's beyond the normal warranty mileage. Otherwise, replacement would cost roughly $1200.00.

5.6.17 Center console cassette holder hinge broken

A very bad design and a very common failure. The official Porsche component used to be very expensive. Recently PCNA made available the hinge frame part 944-552-553-01-01C (left hand drive) 945-552-553-01-01C (right hand drive) which is much cheaper. Steel after market replacements are also available.

5.6.18 Cracked or Broken Windshields

The 944 windshield is particularly expensive, the list price is over $2000! If you don't live in a major city with many glass places, you may want to mail order the glass and have one of the local glass people install it:

Prices as of 2/95:

1977-1984 $256.00
1985-1991 $445.00 with antenna
1990-1993 $365.00 convertible and with antenna

5.6.19 Cracked Dashboards

A very common cosmetic annoyance. Gary Cook (gary.cook@sun.com) researched various places that rebuild dashes. The price ranges were from $300-450.

5.6.20 Leaks in the passenger cabin

These cars are prone to leaks into the passenger cabin that usually originate from one of three areas: the sunroof, the hatch, and the passenger side footwell.

Leaks from the sunroof are usually caused by stopped up drain hoses. These hoses allow the water that accumulates in the drain canal around the sunroof to run out. Check to make sure that there is no debris in the tubes that will stop them up.

The hatch can also leak. Leaks here are usually caused by a worn out hatch seal, stopped up spoiler drains, or a combination of the two. A new hatch seal costs around $60. The spoiler drains are the small rectangular holes on each corner of the spoiler. These can become clogged up, allowing water to back up and spill over the hatch seal. Replacement of the hatch seal and cleaning the drains will usually solve these leaks.

The final problem area of the 924/944 with leaking is the passenger footwell. The can problem occur when the battery leaks acid onto the battery tray (located directly above the passenger footwell in the engine compartment) and rusts it out. Eventually, the tray rusts completely through and allows water to enter the passenger cabin. The best way to repair this problem is to have a new piece of metal welded into place in the battery tray; however, this is expensive (around $500). Some have fiberglassed the tray with some success, but usually the leak will return eventually. If this has not already occurred to you, use a battery mat to absorb the battery acid and prevent the rusting. This does not apply to the newer models with the battery located in the rear.

This problems can also occur when the accumulation of dry leaves and other debris near the battery compartment and the corresponding part on the driver side clogs up drain holes, leading to accumulation of water, which will then find its way into the driver/passenger side footwells. Clearing this debris once or twice a year is easy and effective.

5.6.21 Clutch

The 944 originally had a problem with the rubber centered clutch fracturing, allowing the center to move about freely and inducing a lot of freeplay to the drivetrain. If you notice a substantial amount of backlash when engaging or releasing the clutch, chances are that the clutch needs to be replaced. This repair will run around $1200 at a shop, or you can purchase the required parts for around $550. There are now updated versions of the clutch disc for these rubber-centered versions consisting of a spring center.
