SOURCE: my 2000 chevy silverado 1500 is hard to start at

First thing to do is look under the gas peddal to see if one of the kids toys got under there and is jamming something up?
Then try taking WD 40 and spraying insie and out under the hood where ever the gas peddal linkage is connected to one another. Let me know after this if it did any good and we'll try some other things,
If you already fixed it let me know and please leave me a thumbs up for the effort, Raz

SOURCE: 2006 cobalt hard to start after fueling it up,

Very likly your over filling the car with fuel. You shold only fill the car till it stops the fuel handle the firstr tim after that you may be filling the evaprotive fuel system with raw gas the engine is pulling this fuel thight the vacume system and it stumbles on this extra fuel till it burns it all. If in doubt shut off the fuel pump early as your wasting the extra fuel your putting in anyway.

2001 Buick Lesabre starts normal everyday. Car sits three days or more will not start unless you put the accelerator pedal down at least twice


put the accelerator pedal down at least twice ? While cranking the engine ? key on ? what ? Your vehicle has electronic fuel injection ,not a carburator . Pushing the gas pedal doesn't do anything The only thing if pushing the gas pedal to the foor an holding it there will put it into clear flood mode , shutting off the fuel injectors .

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


Hi

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.

Please check the link to remove throttle body in your car:-

Clean the throttle body, and each end of the accelerator (throttle cable), use carbutator cleaner and a shop rag for the throttle. And use dw40 for the accelerator cable.

Accelerator pedal sticking - 2005 Pacifica


Buy throttle body cleaner at your local parts store. Take the big intake hose off that is connected to the throttle body and air filter housing. Open up the butterfly (like you're controling the throttle at the engine). Spray this cleaner inside the throttle body, around the butterfly, where it motions back and forward on the pin. You will see a lot of carbon build up run out. Do this 2-3 times. It doesn't take a lot to clean it, just a couple of quick sprays. Wipe it clean with a clean cloth or rag. Put it all back together. It will seem hard to start for a few turn overs, but this is from the cleaner and it will dry out quick. What happens is, over time this carbon builds up where the butterfly closes and it gets (stuck) on this build up, which causes you to push harder on the gas pedal or it will not close completely. They charge will charge you like $250+ to do this and usually it's just build -up. Try it and let us know how it works for you. The cleaner $5

Take off the throttle body (very easy to do) and use carb cleaner to clean off the gunk. You have to clean both sides of the butterfly.
