Replace the COPS (coil on plug).

Replacing cops did not fix problem. There is a recall on vacuum leaks that seems like the most likely fix. Will let you know.

I have corrected my problem with my LS. It was surging at idle . I have seen several such reported problems on this site. My correction was a short ninety degree piece of rubber hose connecting to the PVC valve. It deteriorates either caused by engine heat of manufacture defect. It is located below the intake manifold. there is an upper and a lower manifold. the lower one is located directly below the upper. It is black plastic and is secured by 4 bolts. You will see the PVC valve screwed into the oil seperator in the center of the block. Do not spend your money buying COPS. This advice is a bunch of bunk.

Gentlemen, if I remember correctly, the V-6 engine has a PCV, while I have yet to find one on my '00 V-8 equipped car. The V-8, however, is known for COP issues, although, thank God, I haven't experienced any issues with mine.

Thanks ... this worked great.
I found that you can open the door when the latch is broken by pulling on the lock with one hand and the latch with the other simultaneously. You can actually get away with not replacing the latch until the lock breaks!
