Audi 80 Sport (2L 8V) Tickover / Throttle Problem

Hi there everyone, tis my first post so I'm sorry if I make any mistakes!

I?ve had my Audi 80 for about 2 months now, prior to that it has been off the road for just over a year and a half. So after a few bits and bobs here and there it passed the mot no problems.

Recently I have had a problem with the tick over, when I start the car it ticks over exactly where it should just below 1k. But when I give it a rev to about 2k it just sticks there for most of the journey. Its not the throttle cable as I had a look at that and its not slack or anything. I also recently replacement the coolant temp sensor so I don think that?s it.

I took it too my local garage who cleaned the throttle body out but after a bit of a drive it went back to the same problem. Its worth mentioning that it will only over rev about 50% of the time, which is enough to be annoying!

If anyone could shed some light on the problem or has had it before it would be a great help Happy

Thanks in advance


p.s. If there is any other info I've missed out just let me know Happy
