Post 2001 vette bogs full throttle
Hey guys my cousin just picked up an 01 c5 under 25k miles with the auto. It is bone stock. Problem he is having is when he mats it he looses power to were it almost stalls then let's off and eases back in. The car is not tuned but I thought can be running lean. Any thoughts?

Start with the basics. Is the intake tract clear? Tap around on the CATS and muffler and see if they make noise. Check the fuel pressure. Vettes have 2 pumps, if one is bad it could cause this issue. Also pull the plugs and see what they look like. Make sure the electrode is intact. If it is white the car is running lean, black it is running rich. Check the plug wires.

Yep sounds like a good start thanks Nick I was thinking grandpa drove the car and didn't do much full throttle and she can be a little plugged up.
