I am about to buy a '77 Turbo from a friend who is liquidating his assets. The car is a 2-owner car with about 100,000 miles. It appears to be in excellent condition. Generally speaking, how much more life can I expect from the engine, and what type of service will be needed to get that life? What is a good estimate on the cost to completely rebuild the engine (and turbo, if necessary)?

Noise after ignition is turned off.

In reading the September issue of Panorama I was able to correct the throttle noise I've had for who knows how long . Thank you very much. My only other problem is when I turn off the engine I here a noise that sounds like a muffled flame in the intake area .Do you have any ideas as to what it could be ? There was a trace amount of oil in the intake outlets in the bypass valve assembly. Thanks for any help. I've had the car twenty three years.

Lack of use problems

Vehicle Information: Year: 1986; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.3; Total Mileage: 36,000;

This question would probably apply to most any vehicle that is not an every day driver. I recently purchased my low mileage 930 and it spends most of the time sitting in the garage with two other cars that are not driven much. I have been told that it is not good for a car to just sit for long periods of time and not be driven. How often, and how far should a collector car be driven to keep everything running properly?

Valve Adjustment

Vehicle Information: Year: 1981; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.3L Stock; Total Mileage: 94,000 Kms (56,400 miles);

I drive my 930 about 5,000 kms (3,000 miles) per year, and do 8 to 10 Driver Education track days per year. I am interested to know how often you would recommend valve train adjustment, given this usage profile. On track, I use 5,500 as a typical shift point. My concern is primarily that the car be maintained properly given the track usage, with a secondary interest in extracting the best performance from the engine.

Cold start problem

Vehicle Information: Year: 1983; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.3; Total Mileage: 28,000;

My 1983 turbo recently started having start problems when cold with low overnight temperatures(40's). It barery want's to stay on, and I hear a destinct whining noise coming from the engine compartment for the first few minutes. After a few minutes of warmup, the RPM stabilizes near 1000 and subsequent starts are fine as long as the car doesn't sit out in the cold. Any ideas?
