Post I win

I don't know how many of you remember a few weeks ago that I was driving on the freeway and my 924 died and no matter what I tried, nothing worked. I tested coil, fuel, electrical...etc, etc, etc.
Well yesterday I was going to call the tow truck but I figured I would try one last thing ....throwing in my new spare fuel pump relay in spite of the fact that I had fuel at the fuel distributor.
It started !!!!

Also, thanks to all who gave me some places to look for the problem..

Sounds like me and that rotor coming loose off my car....everyone thought a belt snapped or i had hydrolock, cause the motor was makin the noise that a valve struck the piston.

It's not a good thing to know about...but...when 5 valves get bent upon deceleration at 3000 RPM, the sound is a gronch, no dings, no pings, it is a light gronch sound.
Not as loud as when you miss a shift and gronch the tranny, its about half as loud as that but sounds the same.

Yep timing belts, their great.


NOT
