Petronella ( Nella for short )

Petronella finally joins Denbi and Rio at her new home , bought a few weeks ago, no MoT, Sorn, but with new head n gasket, and cambelt change done by previous owner, along with a selection of spare parts ( including a set of unused nobbly tyres ), so lots of bits and pieces have been done to pass her MoT, small patch welded on sill, small weld bottom of drivers side B pillar, headlight wiring, rear brakes stripped, new cylinders and shoes fitted. Also whilst at my usual garage/MoT station, got them to do oil n filter change, coolant flush, and fresh gearbox fluid.
Nice to finally have a drive in her, initially shocked at parking speed by steering as I have been spoiled by city steering for a few years now, lol, but everything seems fine, braking also needs more planning than usual , the interior is quite badly nicotine stained and sunbleached, so somewhere down the line I may look at getting a re trim, since her test bonnet spring catch has disintegrated so I have a temp spring in to stop the bonnet flapping, front wiper valiantly worked for MoT but now appears rounded , and I have a speedo cable that needs greasing by the sounds of it, and wiring for my fuel and temp gauges to check, there are a lot of things to do, but i'm looking forward to it all

Re: Petronella ( Nella for short )

Looking for advice on a running issue, Car runs and accelerates fine in normal mundane use, but if holding onto revs before changing gear, especially second to third, and third to fourth the car hesitates as if its hit a rev limiter and will not pull anymore, worst still and get on the motorway and the same thing happens and she is all done at 60-65mph tops. I have had a few mechanics and auto electricians look at her, she has been on a rolling road and he estimates fault kicks in around 3500-4000rpm, his current thinking points to throttle body fault, any insight or similar experience and solutions would be very welcome.

a: Can you buy a new or refurbished throttle body ( Ricambio, e bay etc )

b: Would and Spi 1108cc unit be the same

Nella is a Panda CLX, 999cc Spi , 1995

She has had new timing belt ( timing also re checked several times ), plugs, rad flush, oil flush, all ready to go apart from this hard to pin down fault
