F30 316i - Throttle Valve replacement?

I have been experiencing drivetrain issues for a while now and I ran diagnosis today and these are the results:



Is it safe to assume that replacing the Throttle Body (if that's what it's called) will fix the drivetrain and lack of acceleration issue? Or is there something else to look out for? I was barely able to accelerate on my way home last night.

The car has a N13 engine, by the way.

Thanks a lot!

Assuming your battery is in good order I would certainly start with the throttle body.

Yes, the battery was worn out for the past couple of weeks but I didn't have money or time to replace it, however I got it done last night right before I ran this diagnosis.

I've had this drivetrain issue for a while, and I ended up rebuilding the turbo, replacing some of the ignition coils, and this is the latest venture that will hopefully completely fix this issue, at least for a while. The N13 engine is probably the worst ever made by BMW.
