Oil pressure problem at idle , ok at light throttle

If your problem is that the oil pressure gauge shows zero or very little oil pressure, or if the warning light flashes or remains on, at idle, but pressure returns at light throttle, you need to get your engine checked. Make sure your engine has sufficient oil - reading on dip stick is in the normal range. At idle, your engine is not getting sufficient lubrication. If you have high mileage on your vehicle, the bearings (crankshaft, rod, cam) may be worn. Or you may have impending oil pump failure. Have the oil pressure checked with a direct reading gauge. If you do not get this checked and repaired as necessary, your engine may fail from the lack of lubrication.

Most likely a sticking throttle cable or throttle plate. Try lubricating your throttle cable

check the trottle cable for sticking by unhooking it from the throttle shaft and move through out the full movement there should be no sticking or binding.check the area around the gas pedal to make sure there is nothing that could have caused the problem.if there are okay then check the throttle bore and plate for dirt and binding by looking inside the throttle to see the plate and bore.move the throttle shaft through out the complete range and see if the shaft sticks or binds also checking the cleanliness of the throttle plate and bore.if its dirty clean it this may be all you need to do.if the shaft binds then clean the shaft area to see if it fixes the problem,if not then the throttle shaft may have to be repaired or the throttle body may need replacing,if its the cable then replace the cable.

1995 camaro- the gas pedal is hard to depress when starting from a stop. i believe the problem is the accelerator cable but not sure


1) If the gas pedal is hard to compress you could have a broken spring inside the throttle housing. The throttle housing is located in the sealed compartment of the cruise control housing.(The housing with the rubber bladder.) You will have to remove the rubber covering to inspect the inner workings of the throttle mechanism. If every thing looks intact push on the accelerator. If it is still hard to push in, you could have a rusty cable.

2) A simple can of WD-40 should be applied lightly to the inner workings of the housing parts.
Try the throttle again and if it is still hard to push, check the connections of the cables to the throttle apparatus. Use the long plastic tube on the spray nozzle of your WD-40 can to shoot lubricant in to the small openings of the cable sleeve.

3) It may take a few minutes of manipulating the throttle to loosen up the corroded cable connections. Once the cable slides and the throttle seems to move freely take a dab of Vaseline and coat the ends of the cable connections. Vaseline will keep the moving parts lubricated and protect the connections from becoming more corroded.

4) By lubricating all moving linkages, you can prevent further throttle sticking. Make sure you replace all coverings back to the way they were when you started. Sit in the drivers seat and push the throttle pedal a few times to ensure that the throttle is no longer sticking.

5) Take your car out for a short spin in a unpopulated area such as a empty parking lot. Start and stop the vehicle numerous times to check it out. If the gas sticks at a slow operating speed, you can simply put the car in to neutral, apply the brakes and switch the ignition off. It is always better to be safe ..

However for an easy solution check cable to throttle body, it may be kinked. This is a common problem. Remove the throttle body and clean the throttle plate with a throttle body cleaner. Clean the front and back of the plate. Just spray and wipe off with a rag. Do not scrub with a wire brush. Doing this can damage the throttle plate. You can buy throttle body cleaner at most parts stores. Make sure you clean up your IAC valve while its off, that thing gets gunked up bad after a while.

Gas pedal sticks/hard to push when first starting to drive. after that it is normal.

You need to clean the throttle body plate and bore area.You can get throttle body cleaner at your local parts stores.Just remove the air cleaner and the boot that goes to the throttle body and hold the throttle open.Take a rag and soak it with the cleaner and start cleaning the bore and the throttle plate til the tarish stuff is gone.You should be able to feel the plate not stick by moving it by hand to the open and close position.You can also spray it down with the cleaner before you wipe it with the cloth.You can use brake cleaner but then it takes longer to clean and you have to rub harder.Throttle body cleaner works the best.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Gas pedal sticks in cold weather

clean the throttle body, a build up at the throttle plate will cause this 'sticking'-remove the air tube that goes from the air filter housing to the throttle body, and look down the throttle while you manually open the 'butterfly'-guarantee it is dirty. Clean it good with throttle body cleaner (use a rag to wipe/dry out the TB).

I am having a problem with my 92 honda accord. the problem I'm having is when I try to acelerate from a dead stop my rpms get stuck at about 2 or 3 thousand rpms it'll get stuck and it doesn't pass those...

As for the sticking throttle plate, hit it with 1000 grit sand paper, and then the area where it actually touches the inside of the throttle body. MAKE SURE ITS 100% clean!!! The reason it is sticking is because of deposits, so really clean it up. Also clean the perimeter of the throttle plate. Hit that with 1000 grit sand paper as well until its shiny again. I just finished doing this and it worked like a dream. Also, when youre done, hit it with some intake manifold cleaner. It has a decent lubricant after it dries that reduces stick. That is your problem. The TPS is probably not messing with your idle, mine's a 93 and it still reads stock voltage. Clean your IACV with some electrical kleen, and then take off your FITV and clean that as well. open and close the throttle plate like 20 times to make sure it's not going to stick, good luck

Why does my gas pedal stick while driving. 1995 isuzu rodeo. it happen when i try to accelerate. its worse when its cold.

The throttle-body (or throttle plate inside the throttle-body) is probably gunked-up with carbon deposits and needs a good cleaning.

Take the air snorkel off of the throttle body and look inside while holding the throttle plate open. If you have thick black deposits on the back side of the throttle plate, you can clean it by spraying some throttle body cleaner (Available at any parts store) onto a rag and using an old tooth brush to push the rag, clean all the black gunk out of the area.

I recommend an old tooth brush because using something hard like a screwdriver can scratch the inside of the aluminum throttle body and actually make the throttle stick worse. I don't recommend spraying the throttle body cleaner directly into the throttle body because it can end up in the air plenum where it may loosen some deposits that can cause severe engine damage.
