GTV V6 Throttle Problems
I recently had my 3.2 04 plate GTV engine out to fit clutch and timing belt. She ran sweet for 12 hours to get it MOT'd etc on the 1st day back on the road. Then I suddenly lost all power and the engine warning light was flashing superfast on & off. The engine would not run at all. While the ignition was on we could here a ticking noise which seemed to coincide with the flashing engine light. It was the throttle butterfly opening and closing furiously.
We disconnected the throttle butterfly and the engine would then start and tick over lovely albiet with the engine light now on full time. We have changed the throttle body butterfly ( all same ) and the throttle pedal potentiometer above the throttle pedal ( all same ). It is worth mentioning that the mech that looked at it said the the earth wires bolted to the frontrocker cover were not really tight. It had been off for the engine out job and the 8mm bolt was on there with the cables but may have been only hand tight. I'm not sure that this contributed to the problem but ..... Does anybody have any ideas please ?......... HELP !, john.
