Loss of power, and back fire when cold?
I have an issue with my 147 1.6 tspark. I have previusley owned a 147 and 156 tspark 1.6 and this new car i have feels done on power. The car itself idles well, but splutters when cold when applying throttle. I have schanged the MAF for a known good one. Also on my computer it shows bank 1 sensor two lamba sitting at a steady voltage, where as the others flucuate according to throttle applied so i believ this is prob part of the problem. However the car has no real get up and go could this be caused just by one defective lamba?.
The car runs smooth once warm, but still not at full power, It will rev right out but there is no surge in power, It almost feels like the variator isnt kicking in above 3000 rpm, but it has been replaced as it was noisy.
Stuck for any other ideas no fault codes present.
Any experience or help greatfully recieved
