Question about 1990 Volkswagen Jetta
When I first start my car, the pedal is difficult to push down, and when it finally gives, the throttle will not release, causing my car to run about 3k rpm while parked. I've used some JB 80 lubricant on the entire throttle body, but the problem persists. The pedal itself is not the problem, it just dangles loosly while the throttle is on ''full boar''. anyone have any suggestions?
Check the throtle plate to see it is damage or spring might be stuck on it.thank so much.

I would replace the accelerator cable. After almost ten years im sure that wire encased by that plastic sheath has a lot of **** in it. Not letting the cable move freely inside of it.
