1991 Porsche 944S2 Pictures

Heard a rattling noise when cold, thought it was the water pump - so decided to change it. What an odyssey! Broke off one of the 6mm studs in the block. Without the kind housecall from R. Gervasi (his website) I'd have been toast.

As it turns out, I think the rattle was just the balancer shaft belt on the S2 motor hitting the water pump pulley. You can see how loose the balancer shaft belt was in a couple pictures 1,2 below. Probably only had to set the proper tension on the balancer belt and not replace the pump.

I did replace the cam chain tensioner while I was at it, and the nylon rubbing block was cracked along the leading edge fold.
