Hi there,
I work for holden.
Does the engine light come on?
Does it feel like a misfire running on 5 cylinders all the time or only under load?
Hopefully only an ignition coil failure, since they run individual coils, one per cylinder.
Hope this helps.

Hi thank you for your response I ended up getting it looked at and it was 2 screws missing from the tailshft and only Half of another one there so basically I had one screw there

Hi there,
Good to hear you fixed your problem.
Sounds like somebody must have forgotten to tighten the tailshaft after removal for some other reason.
