    Do you mean the "butterfly" flap. I would say Yes, as it opens/closes when the throttle is pressed to let more/less air in.
    Or do you think the "butterfy flap" is at an angle due to the posible build up of carbon on the in side of the throttle body.

    Sorry yes wrong term, I've only ever looked at one other on previous car and it sat flat. My car is a little slow to start sometimes and requires a dab of the the throttle so was curious as to whether it was ok, which it sounds like it is

    if you block the top it cuts the engine out so it must be like that to let air in all the time.

    That's right. Diesel engines don't work the same as petrols. If you shut the butterfly on a diesel engine it'll turn the engine off.
