I have a 1998 AM DB7 Manual. The throttle takes a very time

This answer was rated:

Good morning. My name is***** have a 1998 AM DB7 Manual. The throttle takes a very long time to settle after letting my foot off the pedal resulting in the engine revving very high when the clutch is depressed to change gear. Any ideas?
JA: Has the clutch been slipping? Are you having any trouble shifting?
Customer: No. The throttle remains high even in neutral. If you sit and rev the car the revs take ages to settle and sometimes don't settle fullu to tick over
JA: What is the make/model of your car?
Customer: Aston Martin DB7 Manual 1998
JA: Are you fixing your DB9 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Not fixing it myself. I took to garage thinking that there was a cable sticking but was told it is some sort of automatic valve. I just want to order the relevant part but dont know what I need
JA: Is there anything else the Mechanic should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: No thanks.
