!!HELP!!

I have a seat Ibiza 1.2 sc 12v 70bhp it's not the fastest car but its reasonably nippy. This morning I warmed my car up as I normally would everyday put it into 1st and went to pull away and normally it pulls away fine but it was very sluggish so I stopped turned it off and tried again; again the same thing happened. Changed up to second and it was as if I was pulling a truck same in 3rd! Usually it's quite responsive when I accelerate but theres just no power what so ever?

Just on a hunch have you tried pushing it ?
A seized on brake might give symptoms similar.
On a flat road just about anyone ought to be able to push a car along the road.

Sounds like engine not firing on all cyls . if not clutch slip but you should get increase in revs if latter .

Has the fuel filter ever been changed?

if you have no EML on I would check intake pipes after the airflow meter could be drawing in unmetered air
