It shifts in to gear, but the car wont go. When you let off the clutch the car just shakes.
Do you
have the same problem?

I feel that the clutch has failed, this is a rather big job on a 944, I would get few quotes first.

The clutch had been replaced. Drove it for a while and the transmission loosened up. I tightened it down and this is wha its doing now.

I feel that the clutch is slipping, either the pressure plate is loose or it is faulty, if the clutch housing was loose that is not a great sign, how long ago was it installed? Any warranty?

I do think that you will have to pull the clutch out again and do a full inspection.

There is nothing on Porsche, best to go get a work shop manual, there fairly cheap and this will give you all the info you need with pics and step by step instructions.
