Should be an ignition control module under the coils then. You can take it off and have it tested at any auto parts place.

 think GM standard was a 3.6L.

Good idea Ian -- did not know one could do that. Auto Parts Test.

Kind of got the impression that it's intermittent (depends on moisture). Might not show up in a test.

Not that I am an expert on cars or car repairs, been lucky over the years on a few fixes.

I use to try a lot, cause I don't trust shops - seems like a lot rip you off and even honest ones cost you a fortune at $80 an hour labor.
Ride Country Roads - a lot. :-)
