Heavy misfire under load/acceleration. Towed to dealer by GM. Dealer refused to look at it unless I paid $110 diagnostic fee despite it being a powertrain issue and having a powertrain warranty. Diagnosed the problem in 5 minutes as a broken spring in the ignition coil of cylinder# 1. Spring in cylinder #4 also strongly corroded. It's clear the seals are not keeping water out of the outboard spark plug holes. Dealer refused to sell the spring only, wanted to sell the entire coil. I refused. Found the boot and spring at Napa for $7. Put dielectric grease on all 4 springs. Fixed the major issue, but I still have infrequent/occasional misfires under load. Probably going to replace the coil next as my attempts to clean the dirt out of the contacts in the coil itself were not successful.
