Could be the cable or the throttle plate.
I would disconnect the cable from the throttle body and check each component.

SOURCE: sticky gas pedal

it is a dirty throttle plate. $280 is an absolute ripoff for a cleaning, it is about 10-15 minutes of work. They are probably quoting replacing the throttle body which about a $150 part.

Got to Autozone and get "CRC Throttle Body Cleaner". Remove aire inlet hose at throttle body with a screwdriver. Spray a *small* bit onto throttle plate, use clean rag or qtips to remove gum/varnish. Spray pivots and also clean around perimeter of the plate. Take it to an independent mechanic if you are unsure of the procedure.

SOURCE: 1999 honda accord idle problem:

Is the engine light on, if so have them read? Take a look the charging system (see if it is above 13volts and below 16volts), see if the gas cap is on firmly and the o-ring on it is in good shape, look at the cars maintenance history and see how long its been since the last complete tune-up. If there are no codes recorded then it would probably be a mechanical issue, Look at coils, fuel pressure, timing, and injectors. If you need more specific info, just let me know, Good luck.

It sounds like a fuel delivery issue so it could be many things such as low fuel pressure from the pump,clogged or partially pluged fuel filter, a malfunctioning throttle posisitioning sensor (if you have a check engine light on) or if its turbo it could be turbo lag etc.

SOURCE: my 1995 chevy caprice classic has a hard shifting

Not really, unless there is a shift kit in there. Have a transmission shop check it out.

2008 dodge ram downshifts hard when slowing down


I have a 1998 ram 1500. And sometines especially when its hot outside mine down shifts hard as I'm slowing down. And the gas pedal feels stiff. I press the gas down real fast and it unsticks but then when I come to the next light it does it again. If it's cold out dose it doesn't do it as much if at all. I heard it could be a throttle body sensor. Any advise?

1995 chevy s-10 pickup can't get brake lights to work.


have you checked the fuse box and both brake light bulbs?
check the microswitch on the brake pedal also. once the pedal moves downwards the switch should activate.

if you can check the resistance of the switch with a multimeter then you would expect to see low resistance once you press down on the switch.

My 2000 chevy silverado 1500 is hard to start at times and when it starts the gas pedal sticks


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

Vibrates when gas pedal pressed.


1. Check the ball-joint.

2. Check the Tye-rods.

3. Your shock absorbers/ struts.

4. Wheel balancing and alignment.

Good luck.

Need a 1996 1500 chevy 305 EXPERT!!!! ONLY!!!


Take an analog ohmmeter, remove connector from TP sensor, and touch probes on terminals of sensor, try combination of 2 until you see reading increase as gas pedal pushed & decrease as pedal released by someone, while engine off, and key off.. Have them slowly, & gradually push pedal, as you watch meter. Reading should increase slowly & gradually as well. If you see it climbing, then quickly drop off, then jump back up, it's faulty. Try to concentrate more on the position of gas pedal where you experience the engine cutting out. Costs nothing to try it.

Truck wont start


You might want to change the fuel filter because bu running out of gas you probably sucked all the crud up from the bottom of the tank. Do this first so you dont damage the engine from all the junk. After this if it does not start try press your gas pedal all the way down and hold it there while starting. do not pump the gas pedal. This should work. Please change the fuel filter first.
