After getting this 'repaired' (Throttle assembly replaced by Indy) all was well .... until today. While driving to work I merged into traffic on the highway and pressed the accelerator about 3/4 down and heard the chime and saw Engine Failsafe Prog. I almost LOST IT i was so mad. No performance issue so I drove the remaining 10 miles to work. About 8 miles in the ASC light came on.
I parked and checked under the hood, all 'looks' good. Im at work now, hopefully this was a fluke but Im getting scared ... If this is another 1000$ fix then Im selling this car.
