Is it possible your fuel is a mixture? Drain tank and add new fuel.


I believe the year Corvette you have has the air pick up routed by the lower air dam. I have know people having driven through puddles on the road that were deep enough to get water into the air intake. One was enough to destroy the engine. Check the oil and see if there is water in the oil. You may have to have the fuel system flushed out. That is a possibility that should be checked.
