Make sure battery has a full charge. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse.
If you have tbi fuel injection, fuel pressure is 9--13 psi.
If you have cmfi fuel injection, my info says 55--61 psi.

1985 corvette, 64,000 miles. idles rough and sounds like it wants to die but doesn't; can watch rpm drop and come back. Just changed the egr valve too. What should I try next or look into?


Your problem can have multiple sources. Spark plugs, change those if they are old. Injectors can be dirty. There are injector cleaning products that you can try. The best I have seen is one that you inject the cleaning solution into the system via shrader valve at the fuel rail, disable the fuel pump and run the car only with the cleaning solution that is coming from a pressurized container.
At the same time change your fuel filter. If your distributor rotor cap and spark plug wires are old, replace those. There is an idle control air valve that regulates your idle. That could be a source of the problem also. Query the on board computer and see if you have any codes. My advice, start with the spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and fuel filter if they are old and go from there. That should be an easy task that does not demand a lot of skills. See if that helps.
