    Really need help now!

    Ive had a problem with the throttle body for some time now (well i think thats the problem) and i eventually took it off and cleaned it. Now when i put it all back on and reversed the car off the drive i found a small gasket since finding this the car has been lumpy and creating funny wine like noises, to make things even better i am nearly positive my clutch is about to go. Is there anyone local to me that I could take it to, to sort. I do have money but not much of it.

    Would be very greatful if someone could help me!

    Regards Tim

    No I think he means when he reversed the car off the drive there was a gasket lying on the floor where his car had been parked.

    Post a pic of the gasket fella, I am sure someone on here will know what it is for.

    That's how I read it too. So yeah, first place to check would be the TB, unless you know for sure you put a gasket in there...
