Hey guys, I need some help on this one.

I serviced my car 3 days ago, all went smoothly however after the car idling whilst having a cigarette, the car took a strange turn and is now undriveable. The engine now turns over, does not stall however it idles and cycles between 400rpm - 1200rpm, with no measurable response from the accelerator. I have replaced the throttle pedal with attached sensor however the car is still the same.

Please see the link for a video of the car idling:


If anyone can offer advice / a solution, this would be massively appreciated as im at a dead end with my limited experience.

Sorted! Took the throttle body off, flipped it over and realised there was a small piece of plastic jammed in the valve, preventing it from moving! Fully cleaned up and back on the car, she's running smooth once again
