Yes the firrst part seems good of the fuel being low and choking the pump , possible dirt accumulating on to with residue from the tank. So this is possible so do not let yourr car run down on fuel Chcek your fuel filter for dirt , if so change it.
The second part is not always true. The pistons are changed when your vehicle has clocked too many miles, had a poor maintenance record, high oil consumption, poor power ratio, poor starting . this is serious maintenance and might cost you much depending on what it needs only after removal of the engine. So dont think of it now.

My 206 has no power

Hi celinoid is part of the starter motor and would not cause this issue! most likely 1 of 3 things

The coil pack on these cars are really poor and dont like getting wet, you can normally tell if the car is chuggy and misfires.

the EGR valve " Exhaust gas recycler" valve this pushes unburnt fumes back through the engine to save fuel and emmissions, whe these go you normally get a warning light on the dash while the light is on the power is poor.

And finally the air flow meter or air mass sensor this regulates the air to fuel mixture if this is not working then the car either gets to much air or not enough. you can sometimes clean this part and it will work again.

Also check all the air pipes from the engine, if an air pipe is split or is taking in to much air then it will struggle to run correctly. be sure to check the undersides of the pipes.

Hope this helps
let me know if you need more info.

Check the alternator belt for proper tension. Also check alternator voltage output. If output is low the rest of the systems can fail.
