have you checked the throttle body and throttle linkage?

I just got code pulled this morning and they told me to try and clean out throttle body first...Thanks for your answer, I am thinking its throttle sensor if cleaning don't work!

these cars all use electronics now a days my 2012 jetta uses a simalure throttle body and it had the computer on the side of it crapped out and the flap came loose. you can take the plastic part of the throtle body and clean the flap and check it for signs of looseness. Also any sensors up till that point if you can clean them will likely help as well. Using MAF sensor cleaner should do the trick for all these parts if cleaning it does not work you can do 1 of 2 things replace the control modual or the whole throttle body. tho its likely you will have to replace the whole throttle body and i would recommend it. If this does not fix your car you can always send it back for a refund they will likely charge a restock fee but its better then having an unnecessary part for full price. I hope this helps you fix it let me know how it goes.
