hi all,
just bought a 04 plate 206 1.4 fever 48,000 miles and there is a total lack of power on the motorway. at 70mph you need to have your foot on the floor. overall when compared to the saxo 1.1 there is a marked differance the saxo easily accelerates even with 4 people in it. also and i doubt if there is any link between the 2 but there is a metallic smell in the car. any ideas?

Component check sequence
Ignition system
Fuel filter/pump/pressure
Accelerator cable adjustment
Air intake system/vacuum system - leaks
Throttle position (TP) sensor
Injector control
Exhaust manifold/catalytic converter
Engine/clutch/brakes - condition.

just the basic sequence of things to check
