Could be a coil pack going bad or spark plug gap not right. You don't put your foot to the floor much? I can't keep mine off it.

You will go broke swapping parts and if you cannotreceive basic information, you are whistling in the wind.

Coil Pack most likely cause but as like any other Buick GN Veteran will tell you. Get a scanner or why own a car like this? Best investment you will ever make.
