Hello and welcome,

My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to assist you today.

I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.

I would suspect that the issue is either a faulty throttle or possibly and air leak in the intake system

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.

I cleared the fault and drove the vehicle some. The fault and condition didn't return until 2 days later.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Does the fault pertain to an individual throttle body or both of them?

Please do not forge tto CLICK ON a positive rating

it is a general fault, does not point to a specific throttle

the fact the fault didnt return for 2 days points slightly more to the throttle than leak

Please do not forge tto CLICK ON a positive rating
