Why would an 81 Porsche 928 automatic only run while in Park or Neutral?
it sounds like the neutral safety switch is bad or out of adjustment. If they use one and I dont know the location if that is the case.
Because there is an electrical short within the
neutral safety switch that is interrupting the ignition. When you're in a gear other than the two referenced, there is no spark as a result. Car dies.
Why would a automatic 92 celica suddenly go into neutral shifter still in drive and when car is turned off re-started car after 30 seconds crank up and run good repeats back into the neutral?
To switch back to automatic after being in the simulated manual mode, you need to shift past fifth gear. When you reach fifth gear, you can tap the shifter to the right twice and it will go back into automatic. Or, you can shift the car to neutral and then back to drive. I would suggest being stopped for this though.
No, the neutral is the return path of the supply from the load. If the neutral grounds out an ordinary layman would never know this was happening. This is because the neutral and the ground should be at the same zero potential. An electrician could test the neutral and find out if this is happening. It means lifting wires while they are "hot" and checking for unwanted voltages.
If it's a 4x4 with a manual transfer case, you can do this by putting the transfer case in neutral. If it has a manual transmission (either 2x4 or 4x4), you can do this by putting the transmission in neutral. If it's an automatic and it doesn't have a manual transfer case, you would have to remove the driveshaft(s).
You turned your car off-a brand new automatic gear car about 3 months old- when the gear was R. You put R to P and re-ignited the car but ignition sound is louder than before. Did you damage your car?
Your question is very confusing if you turn your car off while it is in reverse then put the car in park or neutral and start it it will be fine turning you car of while it is in gear is not going to hurt it but i would not do it while it is moving if you turn the key to start and you hear a loud whiirr and your engine does not turn…
A 1980 Porsche 911 SC with a 3.0L flat six motor holds about 11 quarts of oil. I would use a nice 20/50 oil. Make sure to check your oil only after your engine is up to operating temp and the engine is running. Don't check it while the engine is cold and off...

If a person was in need of having their Porsche repaired and needed a garage listing, the best place to start would be the Yellow Pages, either online or from the book that is delivered to the home. If one looked under the listing of auto repair - European, one would definitely fine a Porsche garage and mechanic.
