Were there any codes stored? Missing and slipping are 2 different things. Missing (or rough running) is engine related. Slipping is transmission related. You say idling low. I assume this is at a stop? When does it feel like it is missing? Idle? Acceleration or under a load? Cruising? All the time? Does the problem happen when hot or cold or both? Does the Check Engine Light flash when it misses? Need more info please. - ChevyASE
