    Not to say this is what you got going on,but throttle bodies are VERY common failure.Some engine sizes have a replaceable throttle position sensor and some are integral to the throttle body assembly.

    Have a scan test that can see all modules and retrive ALL error codes. Your mechanic will know what to do.
    Snap-On Modis scanner, for example, can do this.
