    Default Chevrolet Joy: Throttle body issue

    So my mechanic told me that the throttle body broke down and I'll have to replace it. So I went to Pindi and got a Kabuli throttle body for Rs. 9000. The guy told me that I'll need to get it programmed as well and recommended me Chevrolet Rawalpindi Motors (not company dealers). So I went to them. They charged me Rs. 5000 and so called programmed it but I'm still having issues with it.

    Problems:-

    1. Poor acceleration both on gas and petrol.
    2. Engine keeps shutting down if I don't keep my foot on the accelerator when I start it in the morning.
    3. Occasional engine shutting down on gas even after the engine temperature gets to normal (one point before mid on temp gauge).
    4. Shuts down every time I turn on the AC with car on neutral (both on petrol and gas).

    I think the throttle body wasn't programmed properly. Am I right? Do these problems sound like incorrect programming of throttle body is causing them?

    I need a GOOD Chevrolet mechanic in Islamabad/Pindi (preferably, ISB) to diagnose the exact problem and fix it.
