I seem to have a loss of power in parts of the rev range on my C1. It feels just like when i had a diverter valve problem on a previous car. It's as if there's not enough air getting in to the engine. Dealer has checked it and nothing came up. last time they put an extra cable tie for the air intake pipe (!). Wondered if anyone else has had this. Was even toying with the idea of an upgrade air intake system

It is highly unlikely a loss of power is related to lack of intake air, unless you drive in extremely dusty environments like a middle eastern desert and never change the air filter. One thing on the 1.2 Puretech engine to check when experiencing a loss of power is the variable valve timing mechanism. This mechanism is powered by the engine oil lubrication system and it is not unknown for the small filters in the oil supply lines to the VVTI mechnism to become choked with debris from the timing belt breaking up. If this is the case then you urgently need to get the belt changed and the engine cleaned up. Specifically the oil pump pick up strainer. Speak to a knowledgeable garage on the subject unless you are pretty competent with engines.
