924 lacking power


Recommended Posts

What are you expecting 125 hp from 2.0 litre. It is not a strong car to begin with. Check timing, spark plugs/wires, rotor/distributor/coil and points and condenser if so equipped. Fuel pressure filters. Vacuum leaks. Air filter, MAF.

I have an 87 924S @ 147 hp and 2.5 litre, and after driving the 911, that car feels like a tank. Hell, after driving the 2007 Taurus, that car still feels like a tank.

Good Luck

Thanks for the help!! I'm not looking to be a speed demon, I just can't get the car over 55 mph. Where we live, there is a huge hill called freezeout hill ans I can't get the car over 35mph.

The engine will not rev to redline under load. I checked the timing, it is dead on. When I checked the spark plugs though, I noticed that cylinders 2 and 3 had oil fouled plugs so I'm thinking I either have a problem with the head gasket, or a problem with the rings. Any other input?

Will the engine rev to redline under load? Check the basics like ignition timing and such but also the exhaust for restrictions.
