It runs great unless it has to sit and idle, then it skips but never stalls out.

    maybe there is a misfire, is the check engine light on?

    You probably have a misfire condition due to a faulty spark plug or spark plug coil. Need to get code read and post result here to further assist. Autozone provides this for free.

    I got the same problem with my 98 Seville with 67k original.
    Thought maybe I got some bad gas. The idle skips at stoplight
    and the takeoff from light seems to be sluggish. No code coming up.
