hi, I'm looking for some advice for this Citroen c2 I have owned for under 2 weeks 😑.

It's a 2008 1.1 8valve engine (tu3 I think)
As the title says, it refuses to rev over idle speed and that's 'lumpy' so far I have had the -
- throttle unit changed
- maf censor changed
- crank sensor changed
- coil pack changed
- Earth points around engine
cleaned.
- plugs removed/cleaned (New ones ordered)
- Injectors changed
- Compression test

There were P0351, P0352 and P0201, P0204 and P0202
OBD cleared these codes and shows no codes now.

Is there something I'm missing ?
Thanks in advance

"Is there something I'm missing ? "and that's 'lumpy' " test the basics, Compression,s, inlet vacuum, valve timing ETC. Then move on to live data checks.

I cannot believe the number of components you've replaced with apparently no evidence that any of of them were faulty!
In fact I'm so amazed that (yes, I'm going to be unpopular here I know) this has to be a joke surely?
Have you actually taken this car to a garage, or more to the point taken it back to the seller?
OK, generally I'm quite tolerant and I do like to see people ask for help.
Maybe just say I'm having an bad night....

it's no joke, I tried to go though what I could before I asked for help - it seemed a friendly place so indeed I did.

I'm on a very tight budget so garage would of been my absaloute last option.

However the problem is fixed - water had got into the ecu plugs, very common so I'm told just wish I'd looked there first.
Thank you

OK, I didn't mean to appear unfriendly and, yes, I suppose you might think that I was. But honestly if you replaced all that list of parts you must have spent what, £500 to £600 or so on an 11 year old car? That's only a very rough guess but I'm afraid I stand by what I said. To do that when on a tight budget ( as all my customers are!) makes no sense. Especially when the fault was elsewhere anyway. No decent garage would have spent that much of your money.
I mean think about it. Throttle body £150 or so, injectors £30 or so each and so on.
But I'm pleased you got it sorted out
