944 Rescue Mission

A couple of weeks ago 924S944.com acquired a 1984 944 NA – they were all “NA” in ’84 – that was in okay shape, but needed some love.  We call these “rescue puppies.”  They are not parts cars, but they are not in good enough shape to go play with the other dogs…they need some help.

Kills Bugs Fast

Bugs get on your paint, glass, chrome, rubber, and whatever else faces the front of the car, depositing their dead, rotting carcasses and releasing all kinds of hellish chemicals. Here is a quick, easy, cheap solution.

924 vs 944: Transaxles

There have been a variety of transaxles used in the 924/944/924S/968 series.  Understanding them helps to understand what to do when you need to replace yours – getting the right one that will work with your car.  Replacing the transaxle is not an easy task, and you don’t want to have to do it twice.

Buying a Used 924S

Acquiring 924S and 944 cars is a disease for which there is no known cure.  We find parts cars, neglected cars and even good cars, but it seems that all of them have something that needs to be fixed or improved – thus the symptoms of the disease.

Mechanical Myths

“I will put some of this in it, and it will be fine.”  If it is leaking, it will continue to leak.  Magic fluids may help in an emergency, but eventually the leak will come back and it will need to be fixed properly.  Magic leak-stopping fluids may get you home, but they are not a permanent fix.
