The easiest way to tell if it's electronic throttle controlled is to look at the throttle body. If it's got cables going to it it's cable controlled. If the throttle body is electronically controlled (some call it "drive by wire") it's electronically controlled. If it's got an APP (Accelerator Position Pedal) it sends an electronic signal to the throttle body to correspond with the pedal's movement.

Kind of like an old steam ship. Captain moves the handle and it sends a signal down to the engine room. Engine room workers make it happen. Man I guess this isn't new technology after all.

If it is electronic do not move the butterfly manually.
