Poor engine response

Hello all, first time for using this so please forgive me!

My 156 Sportwagon (1.6 manual) has recently had its engine warning light come on on the dash. The problem I'm assuming this is relating to is that it wont go over 5000 rpm in any gear. The car had been sat for about 9 months in a garage and has only just been put back on the road and this problem has just occured.

Anybody got any ideas as to the cause and a possible solution.

Thanks all in advance.

Re: Poor engine response

sounds like the old MAF sensor...unplug it and see if it feels any better, if it does then you have your problem.

the MAF sensor is the thing plugged into the air intake pipe between the airbox and the engine, just unplug it (carefully)
