Yeah I've been there playa. I replaced all valve cover gaskets, all ignition coils, all spark plugs and problem was solved. My pockets felt the pinch though. The key is the valve cover gaskets. They are the culprit.

I have replaced both valve cover gaskets ($600), but the miss fires are still happening. Dealer said they cleaned the oil from plugs and wires. Seems misfires happen at low speeds, accelerating and hills. I didn't replace the plugs during the gasket change. Sure would be nice if I could find out if there was/is some kind of
recall or (free) dealership fix for this problem. 2001 LS 88K

There is no recall or extended warranty on a 2001. You need to replace all of the COPs (coil on plug). They were damaged by the oil or they just wore out on their own - either way you need new ones. Best to just replace them all and get it over with.

COPs...can you give me educated guess about price for a COP?

Not sure exactly - never had to replace mine. I know you don't want the really cheap ones on ebay. I'm thinking they're in the $40-$60 range.
