On my Crossfire I need to do a throttle reset every once in a while to reset
the fly by wire throttle, improves the throttle response particularly after
lots of motorway driving. Procedure on the Crossfire (MB V6) is turning the
key to on fully depressing the throttle turning the key off and waiting 2
minutes=85.

Some googling suggests the Totota / Lexus V8 can be reset by pulling the EFI
fuse?

Had a look at the throttle body, when you pull on the accelerator cable, the
flap only partyly opens when it should be max
