HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

1986 Turbo Options - Help

Post  Bluemach1 on Tue Sep 01, 2009 12:47 pm

I am looking at a 86 turbo. The owner gave me the option codes. Two of them I can not identify. 141 and 142.

Anyone know what these are?

I too have an 86 turbo. It's either open or the previous owner burnt the clutches up. My transaxle does have the cooling setup on it as well and I just wonder why they would put such a setup on an open setup.

So I had the guy double check the codes again. He verified 141 and 142. Anyone know what these are?

Options dont list 220 (LSD) but he did confirm that the trans code is "5R" (oil cooler w/ LSD according to Clarks Garage). Does that seem right that it would have one but not the other?

Also, he says that the car has air conditioning but option codes does not have "559". Does this seem right?

Any help is greatly appriciated.

Where did the trans code come from, the trans itself or the option sticker????
It does have the Koni Shock option, 474. Check and make sure they are there.....

Trans code "5R" came from the sticker. From Clarks it should be oil cooled with LSD. The Koni's are probably long dead, no?

The only true way is to read the number off the trans itself. My friend has a couple open turbo trans that have coolers. I was surprised that porsche did that. Clutches add heat to the oil. I have a 944s lsd that doesn't have a cooler. But its an 87 trans. Get under the car with a mirror and read the numbers on what would be a bellhousing normally.

so the option sticker doesnt necessarily represent what the actual items are? I dont know if i will be able to get underneath the car...

Anyone know what options 141 and 142 are?

Trannys can get changed.

Post  dallas on Wed Sep 02, 2009 6:23 am

Unless Your buying from the original owner, and its a low mileage car. Its pretty much a crapshoot. I've had 3 trannys in mine since I've owned it. I finally got the 944turbo s trans I wanted. Even the numbers can be wrong if someone installed a torsen lsd unit. Highly unlikely for a non tracked car though.

My 86 has the 474 Koni option and a trans with LSD/Oil cooler, but I still verified it when I purchased it 8 years ago. The Konis are still in great working condition at 115,000+ miles.
If the shocks are worn out Koni can rebuild them for less than new, usually.

Might want to jack 1 rear wheel off the ground and try to turn it. if it turns freely it is an open diff. If there is resistance but will turn with force it is a clutch style posi / limited slip. if ti is locked solid it is a locker or spool (un likely) I cant remember what a good break over tork number would be for these units. Eian at 944 online would know.

^^ make sure you leave it in neutral. If you leave it in gear and only spin one wheel, it will be locked.


Its better to have BOTH rear wheels off the ground, then spin one wheel (still in neutral). If they turn in opposite directions, open diff. If they turn in the same direction, LSD

I am going to inspect the car Saturday.

To locate the trans code, can it be seen from the engine compartment? On clarks it says you will need an inspection mirror and a flashlight. I am assuming that this is done from the top and not from underneath the car?

One more thing, the owner says that compression test is 150, 150, 150, 170. I am not positive on what would make that one cylider run so high. Is oil getting in there? Any thoughts?

Anything else that is a MUST to investigate? (keeping in mind that the engine is coming out)

Thanks,
Ted

The number is on the top of the trans housing in the back of the car. very hard to see. the number is on the top center of the bellhousing over the coupler. must be seen with a mirror from under the rear of the car.

Thank you, I had my orientation all wrong.

Can you tell I have not owned a 944 before?

Thanks,
Ted
