think its sorted.. a lead had come loose of the bottom of the ignition pack(not sure of its real name, trying to buy a manual of ebay).. anyway put the lead back on and it still did not work, so i took a lead of the battery for a few mins, then replaced it, and then tried the car and as if by magic it was running ok...... i like these little cars... first fiat i have ever had..

With a lead off the 02 sensor would have been seeing unburnt fuel, so would have put the system on to 'limp home' mode.

Resetting the ECU has cured it.
