02 gen 3 se - no power in 1st gear

Postby mo1ponty » Tue Nov 20, 2018 12:22 am

Hi all.

The gen 3 2.0 se seems to be lacking no acceleration in 1st gear. To put it in to prospective;
Our 1.2 fiat Punto sporting 1997 kicks this cars bum up until about 60mph.
Any ideas on how to improve this?
Is it a common problem or is there a fault with the gear box/ clutch?
the clutch is not slipping.

there are 2 known faults with the car, central locking fob works but does not operate the locks only the key does, also the driver’s window sounds awful. I have only paid £1000 for the car.

It does need a new drive belt/ steering belt as on full lock it has a high pitch noise.

Any support and knowledge with the car is greatly appreciated

thanks mo
