    Today i got an update from the dealer that issue was rectified by realigning the clutch pedal switch. They got this update from Fiat india for the power loss issue for Linea and Punto.

    Today I got the car I drove it for few kilometres but the same problem persists. The power loss s felt and as soon as I switch off and switch on the engine the problem dissappears. I don't know why Fiat is not providing any solutions. I think all illiterate engineers are working in Fiat engine or else tell Fiat India to stop car manufacturing businEss if they can't sort out this problem.

    Check the fuel pump. Try replacing it and test drive it. A faulty fuel pump can create such problems.

    Vipin - What RPM's do you drive - do you shift early? In VGT's RPM's play a big role in FE. Do you lug your engine - ie., drive at lower RPM's with higher gears?
