Anybody have experience with Codes P0122 & P0638? They both seem to be throttle body codes.

Car has 96,000 miles had to drive it home on limp mode the other day.

Will a new throttle body fix the issue? any concerns with aftermarket units? the OEM one is EXPENSIVE!

Thank you in advance for your help!

I have not cleaned it, I ordered a new one.

I don't have a VCDS, but using the reset steps I found online (non VCDS) after a reset, all the warning lights went away. drove it around a bit, ran like **** and the lights eventually came back on. I am hoping replacing it will work.

Thank you for you help!

@stan067 Got a re-manufactured Throttle body for $300 from O'Reilly and that did the trick. No codes and car drives like new! thanks for your help.
