Thanks,

I planned on going in to the shop for some preventative in the next week or so.
Plugs, wires, rotor, cap, coolant flush, trans flush, O2 sensors, K&N air filter, serp belt. Do you think I am missing anything?

you dont have a distributor, you have ignition coils. Don't look into replacing them unless you are having a misfire.

I'd really look into the LIM gaskets and having your UIM replaced.

I will. Any guestimate on cost at a GM Dealership. No dis. cap? Shows you how mechanically inclined I am. Which end of a wrench is the open end again

No actually I have no idea what it would cost there. Usually we try to talk people into doing the work themselves. Ever been under your hood? The pictures make it look scary, but taking the top end of the engine off is pretty straightforward.

I tend to make things worse instead of better.

A shop might charge you 4-6 hours @ $100/hr
