Hi ya

Sounds like you TMAP sensor is playing up, I would pull the pug off and give it a clean out with wd40 or similar make shore it's not wet with all the rain we have had recently
If your not shore where your TMAP sensor is open the bonnet look at your intercooler cover you will see it at 6 oclock position ish there are two connectors there the one going left to right is your knock sensor connector the other is your TMAP sensor.
If the plug is ok you may have to remove the sensor only two bolts and clean it carefully. If not you may have to replace it.
I would try to borrow one before splashing out on one just Incase the problem is somewhere else
Where are you in uk

Hope this is of help
