    Hi all, first time posting so apologies if this has been covered else where.
    I recently bought 98 328i saloon which I had to leave on the drive for a couple of weeks before I could do anything with it.When I went to start the car the battery was flat so I replaced it. Then when I started the car the eml light came on and the triangle warning light in middle of dash and the car wouldn't rev over 2000.
    I took it to a garage yesterday and had them put it on diagnostics and its coming back with 2 faults
    1:engine throttle mechanical fault(sluggish/stuck) OBDII:P1580 Throttle Valve Mechanically Stuck
    2:activaction map cooling OBDII:1622 MAP Cooling Control Circuit Electrical

    I don't know a lot about cars so need to know if there an easy fix for this or am I looking at scraping the car?
    Thanks in advance for any help

    Brian
