Please help. Car starts fine but once into 3rd or 4th or 5th does not want to rev, no power a job just to keep moving. Two mechanics had a look first sent it to the second as he did not know. Second put it on a diagnostic which just gave a quiry, for the fuel power sensor. Advised to blast it in second to clear dirt or new sensor, to me of no knowledge makes no sense one contradicts the other. At rest car idles at 2000 rpm, will not rev past 4000 revs, drives as if choke out full all the time down to 14 mpg. I know there is little straight in life any one suffered same or similar. Thanks Steve.

Have the turbo checked out. Make sure that the turbine spins freely. If it does not spin then your turbo is bad causing no power.

I wish it was a turbo, but nope just a normal 1.8i but thanks for the response. Things are not getting any better. 90% of the time the instant mpg is reading 11.1 mpg thats irrespective of what gear it is in, seems just to be a constant read out.
