    First thing to do is clean out the throttle body as dirt in here causes this fault. And also ensure the engine breather from the bottom of the engine to the rocker cover is not choked up.
    The diagnostic check should not just be a read for fault codes but a check of each component in live data menu. If the garage cannot do this then you are wasting your money.
    If you bought the car from a trader/dealer then its under warranty so take it back.
