    I'm guessing your intake gasket is leaking into the spark plug wells and causing a mis-fire. Try adding some stop leak, remove the coil packs and dry out the plug wells.

    Yep, if it's not on the ground, it's either going into the oil (does it look ok on the dipstick?) or the combustion chamber (either through an intake manifold gasket leak, cheaper to fix, or a bad head gasket, expensive). The intake manifold leak seems more likely for these engines.
