Fiat punto 1.2 2003

Hi guys ,


Hope this is in the right section


This is my first thread so take it easy on me . Ok my car is a fiat punto active 1.2 2003 8v . My problem is when I'm in certain gears my car feels like it has no power and the revs are actually higher than the speed im driving at . I seem to struggle to go over 60 . This does not always happen only now and again say 2/6 drives . From what I have read it could be the clutch or coils . If anyone can help I would much appreciated it . Thanks in advance Michael

Re: Fiat punto 1.2 2003

Thanks guys I did suspect this was the problem , next question how much can I expect to pay to put this right at a garage . I know the actual clutch kit is relatively inexpensive so I'm guessing it's just labour . Am I also right in thinking the engine will have to be dropped in order to replace clutch .

My next door neighbour changed the clutch on the wifes mk1 in an hour. Mind you he's an Ex Fiat Mechanic and we did have a ramp and the use of air tools too.
