Commodore VR running poor HELP!! Sign In

Commodore VR Series II
6 cyl 3.8L

Hello guys, I'm not very mechanically mind as I'm lacking experience, although, I would like someone to walk me through what I should be checking and why my cars running like this. A few weeks ago I bought a commodore ute, the first problem I noticed with it, was a leak in a brake line at the rear, I've changed it over and its fine now. Although, I was driving around this afternoon and my car dropped a lot of power! and I mean a lot, randomly, then my exhaust began making a weird noise, and it was slowly just blurring in idle, my tempts also off, I think it may not even register at all. I know the exhaust is going to need a change, what else should I change on a second hand car? I did a little service, oil drop, oil filter change, air filter, spark plugs, fuel filter. Should I change my fuel injectors? maybe I've got a wrecked vacuum? Ideas anyone? I want this thing running clean a.s.a.p
Thanks for your time, Dylan.

p.s, sorry if i've missed anything be sure too ask me and ill respond!

I just started it up, it seems as though it was sucking air in or it sounded like it, and it was idling really rough. NEED HELP PLEASE!

This forum is based out of the states, so we don't see those makes here. You don't have any service information to use to help you out.

If you could take a video of how the vehicle is running and some shots of the engine bay, we may be able to give you some suggestions.

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.
