    So I thought a recent problem with my car was clutch position sensor. I went to tps got a new and improved sensor and fitted it using a guide online.

    In another thread Vfr username informed me with great pictures that could be plastic stop plate as was on his, just been out and checked that seems ok ( tearing my hair out)

    Taken car out and tried all manners of driving , I now think I have pinpointed it to not the clutch usage but accelerator!

    When I let off the accelerator evewithout up gear or using the clutch the revs still hold or rise depending how high they are in the rev range but they don't instantly drop or let off like they should...."..?

    Now I'm thinking either drive by wire problem,
    Throttle body dirty,
    Throttle body need aligning,
    Or any ideas / help you guys can throw my way


    Cheers, Sean
