Good ol P1351

Ugh, start the X this AM then as I start driving SES light blinks. Go to O'rileys for the code reader pulls P1351. I drove it this past weekend no issues. Today it ran like a turd no power, idles like crap. Been reading to see what it could be. I know I need to replace valve cover gaskets and spark plugs. Thing has a pretty bad leak and I'm guessing has dripped into the spark plugs possibly being the issue. Last time I checked under the oil cap, last week, no Mayo or anything pointing to a bad CCV. I will check later today to see if something magically changed in the few days it sat parked in 70* weather. Any other things I should be checking before I order parts?
