Any car mechanic around? 0

Is there anyone here who happens to be a car mechanic? Tongue I'm having some trouble with my SAAB 9-5 and I think the problem is a result of a dirty throttle body. Now, I can't check right now since it's too dark outside at the moment but I'm gonna have a look tomorrow.

The biggest problem is that the throttle body most likely have gone into something called limphome mode. This generates an error code which is electronically saved so after resetting the limphome mode I also need to clear that error code from the system to prevent the throttle body from going back into limphome mode.

Now, I have 3 questions:
1. Is there anything in particular that I should be thinking about when I remove and clean the throttle body?
2. How do I reset the limphome mode?
3. How do I clear the error code from the system?

Thanks in advance!

Haha, well thanks... I guess Confused Tongue

Anyhow, it turns out that it wasn't the throttle body after all, it's all working fine. My next thought was that it might be some water in the tank from the previous owner who probably didn't know what he was doing. So I went on to buy a bottle of carburettor spirit and put about and pored some into the tank. And what do you know? After a wile of revving the engine, it started to work better!

Now, I can't say for sure that this was the problem, but it seems like it. I'll have to wait until tomorrow to see if the problem is still there and if it is, I'll have to see if it's starting to resolve itself. It might take about a tank of gas before I know for sure if that was the issue or not, but by the looks of it, it may very well have been!
