1991 Holden Commodore Executive 3.8L from Australia and New Zealand
A cruising car with punch
Major oil leak at back of motor, rear main seal of the transmission was the cause.
Fuse cover under the steering wheel kept dropping down.
Washer jets on bonnet need unblocking, every now and then.
Automatic gear changing was rough, needed the accelerator cable stretching.
This car has plenty of go when you need it.
The motor idles rough and is noisy compared to a lot of Japanese V6 cars.
But the car is big inside, comfortable to drive and totally reliable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I would definitely be look at your throttle Body being dirty.
This is a common problem on the V6 VP.
You can do the job yourself, take the throttle body off and clean in and out with petrol.
Carbon and muck develop around the throttle body valve which has a small gap for air so the car idles. the Dirt clog's this gap up and the car starts to idle crap!
Hope this helps.
