Other Required Maintenance
  1. Brake Fluid and Engine Coolant should be replaced every two years regardless of mileage. If the car is tracked, the brake fluid should be changed at least once a year.
  2. For 944s, the timing belt and balance shaft belt should be changed at 45,000 miles. For 968s, they should be changed at 60,000 miles. For both the 944 and 968, the belt condition and tension should be checked every 15000 miles.
  3. For 944s it is recommended to replace the water pump at every other belt change (90000 miles). For 968s, it may be possible to extend the life of the pump to the second belt change at 120000 miles. However, you should monitor for indications of a failing water pump closely after 100000 miles.
  4. For timing belt and balance belt tensioners and rollers, it is recommended to remove the rollers and spinning by hand at each timing belt replacement. If the roller is noisy, it should be replaced. All rollers should be replaced at every other belt change unless it’s an individual roller that was replaced during the previous belt change.
