My brother had a Phazer back then, I think they still use the same motor for the Venture. I always ended up having the motor run on single cylinder whenever I didn't warm it well. I guess it had something to do with the cold.
We still have a Phazer. The last of about 15 of them over the years. We had real good luck with that engine. The last one we sold had 9800 miles on it with nothing being done. We got our first one in 1984 and bought our last two in 1999. The only thing we ever had a problem with was lean running on midrange. Drive for a long way at half throttle and they would lock up.
