Hi Ben,

Sounds like you have the dreaded SCV (Suction Control Valve) issue.

There has been a revised SCV out for a few years now.

Still available from Holden.

You could also have a failing low pressure fuel pump.

I would run a TECH 2 diagnosis of the vehicle first.

Hi Ben,

Have you had a diagnostic check done as yet?

I hope my suggestions have been of some assistance to you.
