Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks
I good tune up may cure your issues but is not garanteed. with a vehicle this old I would change the ignition module(located in the distributor), ignition rotor, ignition cap, ignition wire and the spark plugs and oil change. Check the pick up coil in the distributor if corroded it may be easier just to get a new distributor. As I said no garantees but you stating the fact that it needs plugs this would be a good starting point to get a base line of how the engine is running

Once you have the new PCV valve locate the old one on your engine. It will sit on the middle of one of your valve covers (most likely passenger side) and will have a line that connects to the top of the valve. Simply pull the old one out and put the new one in snapping that line on the new one. Should only take about a minute to do. Hope this helps, let me know if it does.

When you say it's destroying the air filter---do you mean it's all sooted up ?? I am assuming that what you mean.
Try disconnecting the vacuum line at the egr valve and see if that helps.
But it sounds more like a plugged up exhaust system.Try disconnecting or looosing the flange before the cataylic convertor and then see how it runs.

not much mate. pretty easy. Just get the original gaskets from the agent and also get a tube of engine silicon from repco or any auto shop. Its a bolt off and on situation. Make sure no dirt and grime falls into the cams when taking off the valve cover.
