my take is its a..........

vaccum leak somewhere. Maybe the intake manifold has a bad gasket or you have vacumm hose that fell off or has rotted. A miss to me means bad plug or lean mixture. How did the plugs look that you changed? If some were extra light color, that could be a lean mixture caused by tooooo much air!

Most of the one's I've had acting like that had dirty fuel injectors. GM V6's are notorious for that and there are numerous TSB's on the subject. Get a profession pressure cleaning. It surely won't hurt and likely will fix the problem. Don't bother adding anything to the tank, that's not strong enough.
