Could be fuel or ignition. When is the last time you changed the fuel filter? I would start with a fuel pressure test.

I have a 2001 Grand Am 3.4l V-6. I have replaced spark plugs, wires and coil pack. Still has rough idle and hesitation during driving.

check the plug where the air intake connects to the engine. i had a loose connection in mine, it cost me an alternator that i didn't need. the wire also caused rough shifting.

Engine hesitation, the trac off light comes and car hesitates.

This is just a shot... Get a Can of "SeaFoam" and pour it into your gas tank with a full tank of gas. Then take it for a "Spirited" drive on the freeway or highway for at least 30 minutes to an hour. (Longer is better) i have had many cars with a little hesitation or sputtering fixed with this awsome product. it is a very powerful cleaner that has chemicals that other brands simply do not have. Conditions should have improved after your 1 hour drive. and will continue to improve as you continue to drive with that treated tank of gas. If the problem persists then you need to get the OBD trouble codes and let it direct you to the failed part. At least you would rule dirt "Out of the Question" (Also read the can for other things that Seafoam can fix on your car and how to use it) also does wonders for a couple cap-fuls in the lawn-mower...Chainsaw....Snowblower...etc i Hope this helps you out... Good Luck!
