Somehow these things are still floating around. You know what they say about 928′s…..95% of them are still on the road today….the other 5% were actually able to be driven home. On the list was transmission lines. True to 928′s, if you have to replace something at the rear of the car, you inevitably need to disassemble something off the front of the car to make it possible, so I pulled the front brakes off…….ok, well there were pads and …

1986 928S

Damn 928′s Got called up to help with a 928S that had recently quit running.  The owner had parked the car, and the next day it wouldn’t start.   JR had pulled a bunch of relays and tried new ones thinking a fuel pump relay, lh relay, etc had gone bad, but with no luck.  I immediately went to the fuel pump first, as I have seen quite a few fail.  Checked power at the pump while cranking, and got nothing.  …

Donkey Completed

Tackled the 928S4 this morning that was having a full heat issue in the cabin.  After some searching, I discovered that there was no vacuum to the heater control valve (defaults to full heat when not working), which was the root of our problem.  Next I had to figure out why there was no vacuum there when the heater knob was turned to “cold.”  I started by taking the mityvac to all the vacuum lines to try and track down …

928S4 Maintenance

Mar 04 2010 porschedoc 928 No Comments

Since project 997TT is on hold, a very nice 928S4 came in tonight for some service due to a leaking radiator end cap.  We will also be doing the thermostat and associated gaskets, and the oil filler tube gasket which is leaking.  An oil change should top it off, just in time for the nice weather Radiator fans out and most of the coolant drained. Radiator out, time to clean up some leaves….. We will be having Orr Radiator replace …
