Need to take off the plastic on the top of the engine (the plastic box) and the air cleaner hose that goes over to the throttle body. There you will see 6 coil packs. Remove one at a time (2 bolts each), under the coil pack are the spark plugs. I recommend using AC Delco 41-103's for the plugs, will idle better with these. When pushing the coils back on, make sure you hear or feel a little click, too many people install these back on incorrectly, which causes more misfires. If the misfire isn't corrected with the new plugs, check the coils. I also recommend cleaning your throttle body while you're at it, make sure to disconnect the battery while doing this. After it's clean, drive around for 5 miles or so to reset the computer.

If it has a very bad misfire, your check engine light should be on and OR blinking. If it's blinking, don't drive it. You'll probably pull a code of p0300, p0301 & so on which will tell you which cyclinder to focus in on.

Engine misses when going up incline until I let off gas


Missing under load can be caused by a number of different things including:
a bad sparkplug
bad ignition wires
if your car is old enough,
bad distributor cap

Also, it's possible it's missing all the time, and you only notice it under load. If so, then add
bad valve
bad piston or rings
blown head gasket

Maybe try waiting untill dark ,fire it up,open the hood (kill the hood light)
spray the plug wires with windex(not water) and look for sparks ,if any ,put a set of wires on it. I suppect this is the only problem,bad wires will kill coil packs

Check the engine and transmission supports on truck.Possible broken support and you might look at the driveshaft for a damaged u-joint or missing balanceing weight on driveshaft. Any one of those things will cause a vibration. If all checks out look at the sparkplug wires and plugs for a fouling condition. Hope this help you.

You will have to remove the valve cover and replace the gasket and seals on the cover and the spark plug tubes. It is not to bad unless it is the rear cover which can be some work.
