Hi to everyone as this is my first post. I have got a 54 plate punto 1.2 8V now just recently it has been running really poor. It starts all the time but always try's to cut out. I recently had it on a code reader and the map sensor & lambda sensors came up so they have been replaced. I am still getting P0170 on the code reader which is fuel trim bank 1 fault. I have now been told that this could be the ECU. Is this correct and is it just a case of buying a replacement or will I need anything else I have been told to replace the coils aswell. Any help would be appreciated as this is now doing my head in.

I'm no expert but perhaps your ECU would benefit from being given a bit of a reset which, as far as i know just involves disconnecting the negative battery lead and leaving it off for a good while. Not sure how long, maybe a search on here would tell?
There are lots of people on here with more experience than me regards Diagnostics who will be able to advise you better but...how does this sound...
If the Long Term Fuel Trim has been falsely altered through a poor O2 sensor, maybe by resetting the ECU as above, the ECU can now begin to use imputs from various sensors again. Just a thought
Let us know how you get on mate please.
