My gas pedal is sticking I have a 89 Buick lasabre... what should I do???


You need to know if the problem is the cable or a dirty throttle plate.
I would disconnect the cable and check the throttle plate first. It may need to be cleaned.

Engine over revs throtle sticking T reg lanos


first off.... does the engine over rev on its own? or only after you press the gas pedal?
does your vehicle have a throttle body that is electronic or cable actuated?..if electronic and revs on own could be one of two issues 1) throttle body itself 2)throttle pedal switch on gas pedal)
if cable and revs after pushing gas pedal ..either there is too much carbon built up on the throttle plate or the throttle cable has begun to fail.. remove the intake tube from the air cleaner to the throttle body and inspect

Carb is sticking.


car and start it up and try to push the gas pedal and it doesn't move. Perhaps it comes free with a bit of coaxing, or force, but, over time, this problem is certain to get worse.Or, far more frightening, you're on the freeway and push the pedal to pass a slow moving truck. When you take your foot off the pedal it doesn't come back up and your car goes speeding down the highway.
Having a sticking gas pedal can be a very dangerous situation and you shouldn't drive your car if you're experiencing these kinds of problems. However, it may be an easy fix once you figure out why it is sticking. The gas pedal to throttle connection is actually quite simple. The pedal acts as a lever that moves the throttle able in and out. The throttle cable pushes a small lever that opens and closes the throttle. Any problems with the gas pedal is certain to be in one of these three parts.
The first step to diagnose the cause of a sticking gas pedal is to remove the breather so you can get to the carburetor or the throttle body on a fuel injected vehicle. Once the breather is removed you will be able to access the cable linkages. Disconnect the cable from the throttle. You can now move the throttle manually to see if the problem is there or if it is in the cable or the pedal.
If the throttle moves freely the issue is most likely somewhere else. If the throttle is the location of the problem you will want to clean that. Depending on whether you have a carbureted or a fuel injected vehicle you will want to make sure you get the appropriate spray cleaner from your parts dealer. Fuel injector cleaner won't get all of the stuff that might be causing problems on a carburetor but carburetor cleaner will leave residues that can damage a fuel

Gas pedal sticks


the throttle plate gets gunked up, you can clean around it and use vaseline and if that doesnt work you can clean the throttle body with brake cleaner on the outside and throttle body cleaner inside if necessary

If it's the throttle cable, remove the end from the pedal. From under the hood disconnect the cable from the throttle body and bracket. Pull the cable out from the firewall. Most foriegn car parts stores sell them. Also check on e-Bay.

EPC means Electronic Pedal Control. Fly-by-wire for your gas pedal--instead of a mechanical cable that pulls an accelerator linkage on the engine, there's an electronic device on the gas pedal, an electronic device on the throttle body and a wire between them.
You should check the sistem with diagnostic tool.

1990 Volkswagen Jetta GL Accelerator/Throttle sticking


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.

Gas pedal linkage


Don't need a diagram.
Start by checking to see that ur cable hasn't come off the throttle body or that the clip in the floor behind the gas pedal is still there.
If it's broken, remove the clip on the floor and remove from the throttle body. Disconnect the cable from the pedal and pull it out from the inside of the car.
