Re: Stall when you take off oil filler cap

Hey Howie.......hmmmm I have an 89 Carrera but never had this problem. Did some research & guess what….a common problem.

Behind the Oil filler inlet there are 2 x ~25mm Air breather hoses. The top hose should have a restrictor inside (metal cone piece) that maintains the oil pressure when the cap is off. You can confirm this if you clamp the top hose with a set of vise grips and then try removing the cap while the engine running to check the oil level. If engine doesn’t stall than this metal cone piece that fits inside the end of the hose is probably the problem.

Here is a link that might help………..let me know what you find out.

Post Re: 911 Oil Change.......

Hey Rob.............you're right, they should call these cars "oil" cooled instead of "air" cooled! I got my 5 gallon oil can at Harbor Freight for less than 20 bucks.

Post Re: wet start

David..........also check the ground connections (Cylinder No.1 case, Left side of engine compartment & Under the car around where the transmission & engine come together. Make sure the connections are clean & firmly connected. These ground connections over time corrode from moisture/the elements and the connection is not a good hard ground!

Post Re: wet start

Hi David,

I don't think its individual spark plug wires. From the sound of your description the problem has a common denominator more upstream unless when you say "it sputters" you mean some of the cylinders are not firing and some are firing. Check under the distributor & ignition coil boot (next to fuel filter) for any wetness along with any wetness around any harness connections inside the engine compartment including the fuse box on the left side of the engine. If you have an engine anaylzer you can check on both the primary/secondary side of the ignition coil. Let me know what you see.................Barry

Re: Setting timing on 84 thru 89 911's?

Hey Bonz,

The 84-89 series 911 uses the Bosch Motronic engine management system which controls the ignition system (distributor/rotor/sparkplug/coil timing). Unlike, the 65-77 911s which needs the distributor adjusted to the proper position & gap between the points adjusted along with the 78-83 series which only requires the distributor adjusted (CIS system elimnated the use of "points").

Post Rotating engine clockwise tips

Fellow 1st Time Mechanics;

When rotating the engine to the correct position for the various valve adjustments here are some helpful tips that might help make the rotation easier:

1 - Always make sure you rotate engine in a CW motion!
2 - Remove sparkplugs before turning engine
3 - Place transmission in "Neutral"
4 - If the belt still slips - replace/tighten belt
5 - If the belt still slips - press inward on the belt as you rotate clockwise

Post Another update to parts list for tune up.............

For those who may have noticed......the two seal rings for the crankacse & oil tank have now been superceded by the same aluminum seal (part no. 900-123-118-30)for both. Sorry for the confusion!

Post Re: 911 Oil Change.......

Good point!

If you leave the oil tank drain plug off as you take off the oil filter the oil still in the filter could drain out the oil tank.

You're right smithy89...........the proper torgue for reinstalling your sparkplugs is 20 +/- 2 ft-lbs.
