limp home mode

Hi all.
If my punto is in limp home mode is it just lack of power i get ? Just rebuilt it and it has not run much for 4 months . i have fitted a universal lambda sensor which required me to solder the existing plug to the new sensor. No codes have come up , no missfire,juddering just a point where the power flaggs. Any suggestions ?

Re: limp home mode

Could be a number of things, head gasket, air leak somewhere on the intake would be my first checks

Is the engine management light actually on? If not it won't be limp home mode
