    I havenít checked the aircon belt and pulleys today, Iíll do that when I come back from down the coast. I left the car at home instead of taking it. I did a TBA today and it didnít make a difference, Iíll clean the throttle body and do an alignment again when I get back home.
    If that doesnít work Iíll check the aircon pulley and belt and let you know.

    Hi mate,

    Finally got some time to get on the car. I took the throttle body off and gave it a clean, then did a TBA with my Ross-tech cable.
    Took it for a drive with the air on and car is running great again. As you said the throttle body needed a clean.

    Thanks again for your advice.
    Cheers
