1999 Chevrolet Corvette Problems
Brake fluid can become dirty and may cause problems in the brake system; it should be flushed every 60,000 miles.
Illumination of the Check Engine Light may be the result of a loose or worn gas cap.
Extended life coolant may become contaminated and require cooling system service before the recommended 100,000 miles.
One or both secondary air injection check valves may become restricted causing poor air flow resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light. It is often recommend to replace both check valves even if a fault code is set for only one bank of cylinders. Replacing only one valve may result in a return trip to the repair shop.
