    I can hear the throttle fluttering in the throttle body. When i disconnected it I was able to idle my way home. I have no diagnostic tool yet, so I dont know it the problem is the throttle potentiometer at the pedal end, or the throttle body. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Code light wouldn't go out, engine would not fire. The answer was the ECU power up relay (£8.50 from Alfa). There are two located side by side on a relay bank under the plastic cover of the F/O/S wheel. One powers the other which in turn powers up the ECU. An easy check if you have the same...
