    Hard to say much without knowing what code was registered. A throttle problem could be the throttle position sensor, the electronic throttle control or just a mucky throttle body.

    These engines are prone to the throttle body getting sticky due to the design of the breathing system, when they do a lot of short journeys the breather pipes clog with oil emulsion which finds its way into the throttle body.

    See if you can find the code details.

    Remove the breather pipes from the cam cover to the throttle body and make sure they are clear. Give the throttle body a dose of carb cleaner.

    Check the connections on the throttle body and give them a spray with WD40

    It would help to know mileage and service history
