I'd check all hoses and possibly replace all vac hoses. They are cheap and easy to do. Often they leak at the connection point from being dry and brittle.
Go over the engine with a fine tooth comb:
- spark plugs
- car adjustment (lean, by turning adjuster screw inward/car may be running too rich.)
- check air filter, restricted air enriches mixture.
- change oil/filter (synthetic 20/50 till winter, then 10W30)
Home this helps.
Oh Your car is 25 years old. In many states they are safety inspection only/no emissions. Check in your state for exemption options. Certainly they are not holding your BRAT to the same standards as a new car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In TX, I'm exempt with my older ones...25 years and older. But the last year I had to do it, it was on a dyno and they ran VERY VERY clean. almost as clean as a 2000 model the tech said!!
