Thanks Poolman, it was indeed the problem, I tried changing the whole throttle body also .... My mechanic fixed Catalytic Converters ... now all the errors are cleared ..... but the problem in the car still is same ..... after few kms it gives the error of Engine Fail-Safe Prog and after that accelerator of car dies ...... If I am on a speed of 100km/hr, I can continue with the same speed but when I bring the car to stop and pull it up again, it takes too much time to again get back to 100 kms/hr ..... my mechanic, I feel is unable to understand the problem .... the only error I am getting now is ¤dle speed control valve-Mechanical Fault .....He already tried replacing the Valve but still no success ....
Please friends pull me out of this depressing stage .... I recently bought and it is really driving me craczy .... Though I prefer to cry in BMW rather than smiling in Toyota but I need to get out of it before my tears get dried .....
Thanks in advance
