98 escort runs like choke is sticking any ideas ?

Check to see if choke valve is stuck close, if it has one. Check throttle linkage for sticking. This car may have an idle control valve. It may be dirty of defective. If so, remove it, clean it, replace it. Diconnect the battery for 10 minutes, reconnect and start it up.

Throttle sticks in the open position

check throttle cable to make sure it isn't frayed, check throttle body to see if it has any damage ,sticking , bent shaft. any thing to cause it to not return to closed position. simply reaching over and pulling the throttle all the way open and releasing it (with the engine not running) should answer that. if it returns back on its own then its the cable

Wide open as in wide open throttle?? You mean the engine is racing? Something is wrong with the throttle controls, or the throttle valve in the carburetor may be sticking open. Look down the carb throat. At its base will be the throttle valves-"butterfly" valves just like the choke valve on top of carb. The throttle valve should be closed at rest, or at idle, or when gas pedal is not moved. Rotate the throttle lever on the carburetor by hand (when gas pedal is pressed down, the throttle is rotated). The throttle valve at the bottom of the carb should open and close with the throttle lever.
If the valve is sticking, spray some carburetor cleaner down it, and spray the outside clean, too. Work the throttle back and forth to make sure it is free to move.
For a high idle, have the carburetor adjusted. Timing should be checked, too-that can cause a high idle, but wouldn't cause it to go wide open.
Let us know what you find. Good luck.

After starting my 98 metro 1 liter the idle increases in less than a few minutes until the engine is racing so fast I have to shut it down, help?

Generally speaking, the only way for the idle speed to increase is if extra air is getting past the throttle plate.
So that could include the throttle plate sticking open, the idle air control valve not closing, or a vac leak somewhere such as a hose or gasket.
If you can cover the throttle body with something and the engine still runs at a high speed there is a large vac leak somewhere.

The stalling is most likely caused by the Idle Air Control solenoid (IAC) and/or a dirty throttle body . This can also cause erratic acceleration if your throttle is sticking.

The problem with your blower motor is most likely caused by the blower motor resistor. All of the speeds except HIGH are routed through it. It is also possible (but not real likely) that your blower control switch could be bad.

My throttle sticking, the car has been sitting for a year. When I start it the throttle gets stuck open. Is there an easy way to fix the throttle cable from sticking?

Your best bet is to keep working the throttle. You can *try* to spray a lube such as Tri-Flo onto the braided cable near the end of the sleeve, and see if that helps with working it.
I also suggest taking the throttle cable off of the throttle body, and manually work the throttle body to make sure it's not what's sticking.

Sticky gas pedal on my 98 beetle whats wrong and how do i fix it?

You can spray some WD-40 on the throttle linkage under the hood. Also you might spray some on the throttle cable itself, the cable could be sticking. The inside of the throttle body and throttle plate could have carbon build up and may need cleaning with some Gumout.

Engine keeps cuting out when breaks are applied

I would say idle air control valve sticking. its common on Renaults. This valve controls the air passing through the throttle body when you open and shut throttle. eg, foot down throttle open, the idle valve will be shut. back off throttle, then the air is shut off through main throttle body, so the valve opens to allow just enough air in for tickover. if valve sticking or moving to slowly it will not open in time to catch the idle when throttle shut, hence it cuts out.
