Angry when warm or hot ; low power,hesitant to accelerate from low gear, high fuel consumpt

I have a peugeot 207 petrol 1.6 . 125000 km mileage year 2010.Please assist, the vehicle is very slow to accelerate(when at low gear) when i press the fuel pedal, it feels sluggish until after about 50 seconds when it finally but slowly gathers the momentum to accelerate. in the morning when the car is cold i do not notice this problem but after some five or so so minutes driving the problem occurs. i cannot overtake cars while on low gear and on a steep hill in traffic i am not sure if he car might stall. At high speed the acceleration of high gears is fine and the vehicle feels powerful. i have done diagnostics but no problem is being detected.
The vehicles consumption has gone very high, it seems i have to press the fuel pedal more harder than am used to.

Default Power loss when hot

Hi Mato,
I'm assuming your engine is a 1.6 vti EP6 prince unit.
I had a similar problem on my 207CC , that is loss of power when engine thoroughly warmed up , say after driving about 7 kilometers. Took car to my local Peugeot dealer who cured the problem by fitting: new Exhaust Dephasing Sensor, new LO Solenoid valve and then resetting Auto Adaptives . Car has been running fine for over a year now.
Hope you find this helpful. Oh yes cost me 233 in total.
