    hi i've recently just bought a 1.2 clio 16v. since ive had it ive noticed when im driving along sometimes the throttle becomes very unresponsive and jerky, it also seems asif it wants to stall while idling. its becoming very annoying and wondered if anyone out there knows what could be causing this? i have a warranty on the car so i can get parts replaced for free. any help very much appreciated

    Might be a fly by wire throttle, if it is I'd suspect either the butterfly is a bit coked up or the actuator's not working properly. If not, might be a sticky throttle cable and a dirty idle air control valve, but as they're happening at the same time it makes me think fly by wire throttle.
