so.... you're throttling and nothing happens is what you're saying? The more information you can provide, the better. Your radio doesn't help either to isolate the engine noise, if any.

My Guess is the car is idle and it's jumping RPM's probably dirty air flow.

Hmm how about a little more information.

Is the car stock?
Is there a tune?
Did you remove the tune if so?
What was recently done to the car?
Can you reset adaptations?
Can you check codes?

Your music selection is terrible for 1.

2. Looks like you just need to reset adaptations and you'll be fine.
Use a bav tool or piggyback

Went to garage today, checked and cleaned the throttle, sensor, airflow meter, all related pipes (no leaking), they come into two conclusions : -

1. checking through machine and found that the voltage will drop from 13.x to 12.x if air-con + headlight is on, is that normal?

2. maybe the injector problem since no enough time to check, but garage has given a fluid and asking me to add it on when filling fuel tonight, to see whether this problem could be solved without really need to move out those 6 injectors for cleaing

3. any other reason like airflow sensor dead? camshaft and cam sensors dead? since garage couldn't found any error code through machine, they can only check it from this part to other part without any clue.

Need your comment ^^~

What device specifically is the shop using to check codes with? Not all shops have the necessary hardware to check for codes on this vehicle.

If your car is having problems with driving and throttle it should be throwing atleast 1 code.

Checked with 2 different brands of tool, but no code triggered, it is a mist! We just can guess either dynamo (new battery has changed), airflow sensor or water in fuel tank, still can't figure out what is the problem here.
