You got a clean air filter? If it can't breathe, it won't run well or at all. Just like you. The car run okay until it's under load (driving)? If so, the fuel filter may be clogging. This will get worse till it won't hardly run due to no fuel. Fuel pump failing? The two cars I've dealt with that had clogged filters, would run less and less well under load, acclerate slower and slower and finally just die or not start. GM car, hmmmmmm. Fuel filter may be in engine compartment. I'm not sure on placement. My Tahoe's is on a frame rail but I think you have a unibody vehicle. If that's so, probably in engine compartment or it's tucked away somewhere. It's a canister looking thing with an in and an out for fuel. That's it. Not complicated just depends on placement as to how hard it's gonna be to access it. Fuel pump is a different story. In the gas tank, tank needs to be removed and pump replaced. Hope this helps.

I would say your best bet is to take it to the dealer and pay the $30 to have them run a computer check on it.  Tell them you want a printout.  They will probably be a little reluctant to give you a printout, but hey...if you are paying for them to tell you the problem, you should have the proof.  Not all but some dealerships will tell you it is like a $400 part deep inside the dash that you can get to without special tools.  When in all reality, it is as simple as a vacuum hose.  That is why I work on them myself!
