    Try searching for the pedal test and do this to your car to see if any fault codes are stored

    the pedal test will bring up your stored fault codes

    paper clip test is something different mate, thats for older engines

    Paperclip part would be on earlier engines with a throttle cable where as with yours i'm 95% certain it will have a electronic throttle
