Here read this forum post

I would recommend changing out the throttle body position sensor first to see what happens. Like I said it's cheap and easy to replace. That way you cover the cheap fix first before getting to serious.
The 0221 error code is actually the throttle position sensor in your gas pedal, not the throttle body itself. Pedal is cheaper and easier - TB under the hood is not so much.

I agree, throw the cheaper part at it first.
