Vortec "spyder" injection system is not the best, you may finally have to replace the system, Have you tried run some SeaFoam in the fuel? See pic.

No I will but would that cause misfiring? I mean I'm going to pull my hair out I've done all I can think of

Yes especially if it is leaking internally in the engine valley.

The common problem is anti freeze is leak on the inside of the engine onto the spark plug causing a misfire and needs either a head gasket replaced or the gasket and grommets inside of the valve cover under the lifters , either way it needs to be repaired internally.
