Question about Pontiac Grand Am
Your throttle body may be getting dirty or your throttle cable is getting clogged. You can take some wd40 and spay the cable it self. Go under the hood, find the throttle cable. You see where it's steel and then gets some plastic covering. Spray the cable there several times and work the cable in and out. The liquid will work it's way through the system. If that dosn't solve it try cleaning the throttle body. I wouldn't suggest this unless you are mechanicaly inclined. If you are, then I'ld get some carb cleaner, open the butterfly, spary cleaner in and let soak for a couple of minutes. Easiest way to clean it would be get a used tooth brush and bush gunk away. When it's down to the metal, a silverish color, it's clean. If you are still having problems, I'll need more info or go see a mechanic.
