1987 930 turbo issue

I took the 930 out for a drive 2 weeks ago and coming home I had to stop at a intersection.....I noticed the car was idling AROUND 2,000 rpm and thought it was odd. I got home and put the car away. An hour later I went out....started it and it still ran fast (2,000 RPM). The next day when the engine was dead cold I went to start it and just cranks.....won't start. Could a hose blown off somewhere? Could it be something that simple? Is it very difficult to remove the intercooler so it's out of the way and I can see in there?

Help!!
Roger

Do those symptoms sound like a vacumn leak?

Also....is there a decent workshop book I could buy for use at home? Books for Turbo's seem to be very hard to find.

Sounds like a fairly large leak, check for hoses that are off.
There is a porsche workshop manual available on line, for info this site has lots.

Stock intercooler is quite easy to remove, two hoses and four bolts.

Monty,

How funny....my 930 is an '87 and Grand Prix white as well. Do you know a good source for a technical or repair book for the 930?

Thanks, Roger

Hey nice car,

I think that I picked the service manuals ( on DVD ) from evil bay. Did you find any problem with your car?

And about two minutes if you work at a relaxed pace ...
