Default Audi 80 Sport (2L 8v) Tickover / Throttle Problem

Hi there everyone, tis my first post so I'm sorry if I make any mistakes!

I’ve had my Audi 80 for about 2 months now, prior to that it has been off the road for just over a year and a half. So after a few bits and bobs here and there it passed the mot no problems.

Recently I have had a problem with the tick over, when I start the car it ticks over exactly where it should just below 1k. But when I give it a rev to about 2k it just sticks there for most of the journey. Its not the throttle cable as I had a look at that and its not slack or anything. I also recently replacement the coolant temp sensor so I don think that’s it.

I took it too my local garage who cleaned the throttle body out but after a bit of a drive it went back to the same problem. Its worth mentioning that it will only over rev about 50% of the time, which is enough to be annoying!

If anyone could shed some light on the problem or has had it before it would be a great help

Thanks in advance


p.s. If there is any other info I've missed out just let me know

did you pull the codes from the car ... i belive that there is more than one temp sensor in your car so check on the rest of them ... throtlle position sensor ... colappsed vacum lines
does the car run good ? no misses stumbles .. just the idle is bad?
