b**** !!!!! The idle has returned to normal but im having the same problems as before im getting a knocking noise from the throttle body

I had to use the throttle position sensor of the old one in the 2nd hand body i got as the inlet pipe to the sensor was broken thats obvioulsy whats bolloxed, i also checked the maf sensor and it's caked in oil which i say isnt helping

Total pain in the b**** and a waste of money ill have to look for a new thorttle body the f*** in england will be a nightmare to deal with to try get my money back the GF signed for the goods after i told her not to as i wanted to check for damage they wont give me my money back :x

Robbie in tdp said thats what it was he said the clicking noise im hearing was the motor in the throttle body being unable to reset thus giving me bad idle

Its hardly a vaccum leak or a blocked pipe? Have you tried swapping out the MAF sensor. . Take a video of the rev gauge to try show us how its idleing :idea: :idea:

Is the flap in the trottle body so?? Just make sure who ever fitted the trottle body did it right any gasket leak will cause the idle to be bad aswell that has to be sealed tight.

Impossible to get to those screws though, you'd need the car jacked as there facing the road and even than woud be hard to do with all the stuff in the way


no there not that bad to get at . i did it on mine aboot a month ago.
