did you recently replace the plugs?

Dean Barnett

well i would check your coils and your wires if your wires have scorche marks then replace them and if you did change your plugs then check the gap on them and it could allso be checking your distribitor cap and rotor it could be falty if it has had any moister under it

i only ask because the best plugs for the LT1 are the original factory plugs. for some reason they struggle with other plugs

I had a '95,..my best fix was to get a 2002 'Z06' & the problem disappeard, maybe that'll work for you,.. the ZR1 is even better medecine for an aching right foot....Ma, pass me the hammer so I can hit my foot pleeeease?
