Vauxhall Astra Limp mode, weak power up hill, no warning lights

2005 Vauxhall Astra Problem

The Astra seems to be very weak under strain, i.e. going up only very slight inclines.

There is a noise which originates from the engine which sounds like it maybe exhaust related.

Car lurches and judders at approx 60mph or 3000rpm.

There are no engine warning lights and a pedal test reveals nothing (constant flashing).

All these symptoms are persistent, there are no moments where there car is working as it should.

Any help would be appreciated :)
