Be carful with the diagnostic test. If the contacts to the ECU are corroded the diagnostic will throw up some fault codes, saying items are faulty when they aren't. And Reanult will rather replace every thing the diagnostic tells them to instead of locating the true fault.

If you get errors pointing to the throttle body or throttle pedal try the ECU clean before you splash out replacing items that may not be at fault.

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
Torque is how far you take the wall with you.
