1997 Holden Commodore 6 cyl Automatic

help needed, my daughter has a vs 1997 commodore that's half dead as I would say. We have replaced spark plug leads not the plugs she had that done about 5 months ago. Replaced fuel filter. Put in a thermostat. Car still wont turn over properly it clicks a while before it turns over. Once started it has backfired a few times. It doesnt run smoothly when she took it for a drive just doesnt have enough go. Any answers would be a big help. We will try the coils packs next then the fuel pump then alternator.

Hi there,

I would get a scan done first, and check for any vacuum leaks as with the back fire vacuum hoses can blow off, is it on gas or is it petrol only?

Thanks for your message, oh the car is petrol. It's getting worse in the engine it does not sound right. Will get it in for a scan and get the other stuff looked at asap. We did replace one coil pack it started ok.
