you might need to do throttlebody calibration on VCDS (probably)

problem sorted? if not, what do you mean it revs on it's own, is it up and down at idle or does it just stay high?

Hi guys, Im new here Im having the same problem with my 2009 citirox 1.4i. Had it on the computer and it said O2 sensor no signal
Replaced it. Car Idles ok but as soon as you rev it it stay high. Oh amd the previous owner "cleaned" the throttle body and said after that the car started doing it. Any idea what else I can look at ?
