The best way to know if the power valve is blown? I have weird symptoms off idle to maby 1800 then smooths some. Also how is the best way to know if the intake manifold has a leak. Would greately appreciate any thoughts. Thanks. Sharkey 5557.

Your problem is fouled plugs.
Are you running a PCV in a valve cover? If you are, do your valve covers have baffles in them? Non baffled valve covers with a PCV valve will suck oil into the engine and make you think your engine's toast. Not saying this is your problem, but could be one of a couple different issues.
