I have a 2002 Dynamique 1.2 16 valve and the power steering seems to be very noisy. I dont tend to notice it during normal driving but when doing low speed manouvers such as parking I can hear a strange clicking noise when I turn the wheel.
When starting the car first thing in the morning the revs seem to rise an fall between 500 and 1500 for a few seconds before settling down. One other thing I have noticed is that the car seems to have terrible throttle response and sometimes it is difficult to pull away cleanly without stalling. One time as I was slowing down for some traffic lights with the clutch in the car did actually stall.
So do all the 1.2 16 valve engines from this problem or is there some sort of ecu update available to make the car run better? As it seems to be worse when the car is cold I was wondering if it was because the car is running incredibly lean to cut down on new tougher emission laws?
