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 …

Noisy VSS and stalling???

Noisy VSS and stalling???

Post  murrayg on Sat Jul 14, 2018 8:55 am

Hi all,

Early 944 / LS1 with TPC VSS kit. Car ran fine for 2 years...actually...car ran AWESOME for 2 years, now it has developed a stall when coming to a stop. Suspected a VSS issue and sure enough, heres what it looks like when plotted:


Any ideas why it's so noisy? What should the gap be from the sensor to the toothed wheel? Would this cause a drivability issue? Any comments?

Thanks,
Gord.

I set them at .040" clearance. Have you looked at the sensor and wheel? I've seen them get very dirty since they are close to the road in the 944. It's easy to get them covered in grease and dirt. I've had one that got hit by something and bent one of the teeth on the wheel. It made all kinds of weird driving issues.

I'm getting back to this......I need to replace the VSS sensor, everything else looks good. Does anyone know what sensor the TPC VSS kit uses? There is no part number on the sensor anywhere?
Thanks,
Gord

A follow up....problem resolved. I replaced the VSS and now VS on monitor is clean, AND, the car drives MUCH better. Lessons learned - Run a good VSS or not one at all (not recommended), but don't run one that is noisy! It caused all kinds of crazy drive-ability problems. The sensor included with the TPC kit is a popular GM sensor - part number 917-644 (NAPA 600-6224).
