    If it's a coolant temp sensor error, have you checked the coolant temp sensor connector to make sure you haven't knocked it or pulled the loom at some point?

    Yeah ive read mixed responses..ive spoken to my mechanic which will have a look tomorrow if he has time when i finish work but he said theres a couple relearns to perform or it could be a totally different issue. I told him i did it by hand and he wasnt to convinced that would be the a problem..

    the throttle blade is fine to move as long as its not powered up, if key is off it should move easily and its fine to do but if u notice any resistance then i wouldnt push it, the temp sensor could be faulty if its showing a code and also changes the idle id look into that, if the temp reading changes it will change the fueling also when they fail they usually show -40 deg which will add alot of fuel and go OL

    I replaced both thermostat and coolant temp about 4months ago both brand new. The temp is going from mid 80s down to like 50 then back up...im engeering.mode the only thing showing -40 is the trans sump

    if its going down to like 50 then its cool enough to bring it out of CL (some bout 55c is the OL limit) and it shouldnt be varying the temp anyway it will always interfere with fueling, id look at this first then u can get some consistency with the sensors then see what the rest is doing

    Off Topic: But what OTR is that? The filter is so easy accessible compared to mine ..

    Edit: Oh wait, this is a photo of it pulled out from the front of the radiator

    Update:
    So car was with mechanic all day. He said hes tested everything. Pulled of TB inspected it. Checked all readings and apparently its doing everything correct to what the ecu wants it to do...fuel readings correct. MAF is correct.he doesnt know what is wrong...not happy cos it cost me $300 and i still have this problem...

    So not fuel or sensors (I presume mech checked O2), and ECU doesn’t report misfire even, try ignition: plugs, leads, coil packs.

    So ive uploaded a a short clip of what my car is doing. The car runs ok and idles fine when statinary but when in neutral and rolling or when you come to a stop itll rev high. Once you stop moving it returns to normal..in the clip im rolling down the road in neutral at 40ks and the revs are up and down. Sometimes it just sits at 2000rpm and other times it does this..itll kepp doing that until you put it in gear or come to a stop
