Engine Performance problem
1985 Chevy Corvette V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual 30,000 miles
" 85 vette has all kinds of power when cold but as she reaches normal operating temp. She developes a " miss" and power drops off to the point where I think I'm driving a 6 cyl.
When I had the car safetied they said it needed a EGR valve.
Could this lead to such poor performance?
I've replaced cap, rotor, wires and coil.
seems to run hot too. Around 110 deg. C. In summer. The fan runs almost continually and I've noticed that after sitting overnight, when I start up it will puff some blue smoke.
