The action of the accelerator pedal is jerky, not smooth. Does the accelerator cable need lube?

Yes it does. But I would clean the throttle body first by taking off the hose that comes from the air filter to the throttle body, held on by a steel clamp. Hold open the throttle plate and spray it down with a brand name carb and choke cleaner. Keep me posted please.

Gas pedal sticking, motor racing


Hi, yes you can fix yourself. Follow the accelerator (gas pedal) cable to the carburetor, at the carb. there should be a spring (this could have come off) that makes the cable retract, have any helper push the gas pedal. You watch the movement in the engine area with the ENGINE SWITCHED OFF. Follow the movement of the cable and check for return action. Lubricate with spray lube on all moving parts. All the best.

My mazda protege 1997 have a hard clutch to push,is there any solution to make more smooth to push the pedal?


If you have a cable operated clutch then replace the cable as it is binding up inside the case. If you have a hydraulic clutch system the replace the clutch slave cylinder and master cylinder as there is a problem with the rubbers in the units that have expanded from contaminants and are seizing up in the cylinders.

I would check the pedal position sensor. Do it when it's hot.

  • Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor

    Description & Operation

    A power supply is applied on the Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor (main) power terminal from the PCM. The ground terminal is grounded with PCM. When the accelerator pedal is moved from the idle position to the fully opened position, the resistance between the accelerator pedal position sensor (main) output terminal and ground terminal will increase according to the depression.

Testing

  1. Connect a suitable scan tool to the diagnostic connector. Select APP1 or APP2 percentage.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  3. Measure the voltage at the PCM terminal and ground with connectors connected:

    APP1-8% load or 0.4 volts with the accelerator pedal releasedAPP1-60% load or 3.0 volts with the accelerator pedal depressedAPP2 -8% load or 0.4 volts with the accelerator pedal releasedAPP2 -60% load or 3.0 volts with the accelerator pedal depressed
  4. If any check above does not meet the specifications, check connectors and wiring between the sensor and PCM. If ok, replace PCM.
  5. If the measured values are outside the standard value range, or if the load % and/or voltage does not change smoothly, replace the sensor.

My C220 has a sticky accelerator pedal action, where can I get a new cable in Queensland?


Your problem might not be the accelerator pedal. Follow the cable to the throttle body under the hood. Overtime, your butterfly valve will gunk up with sludge, and will have to be cleaned. It is very easy to clean, just spray throttle body cleaner on it, and that should fix your problem. This fixed the sticky gas pedal on my honda accord. Before using throttle body cleaner on your throttle body, make sure it is safe to use on a mercedes.
Hope this helps,
Matt

Accelerator pedal occasionally sticks off idle


Hello There.

Doesn't sound serious just need to WD40 and grease the throttle cable and mechanism. It'll also be good if you do the same at the pedal end, this will solve your proble.

Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate me on fixya.

Thanks

Coud be a cable problem or a stuck TPS (throttle Position Sensor) Check for binding linkage with the engine off operate the accelerator while someone watches the action to make sure it goes back to the original poing with no binding or sticking Replace the accelerator Cable or Lube any sticking linkage with liquid wrench,

Hi there, I have a 1990 Volkswagen Jetta Flair 2. I've had the car for about a year now and overall it's been an excellent car for it's age. However, there's always something that needs to be fixed and lately I've had throttle response problems. I do not have any mechanical backround, so I will describe it as best as I can. For one, it seems apparent this is an issue when the engine is cold (or not sitting in the sun all day). I will put the foot down, and it won't respond until it gets to about 3000rpm (right around when I'm thinking about changing gears), and then it rocket ships forward. Before it finally responds, there's a lot of shaking going on in the engine bay. It doesn't sound pleasant either. I took it in for an oil change, and they put fuel injector in it and it seemed to be a temporary solution. Whatever the case, there's a poor connection between me putting the throttle down and the car responding to the action. I do rev it up before I get going, but it's kind of futile. So as a result, I have a tendency to stall in first gear at low speeds as the gas doesn't react when I want it to, and the clutch is usually released by that point. After about 5-10 minutes of constant driving, it will accelerate smoothly. If you can point me in the right direction, whether it's "fuel" related, or it's some sort of heat sensor (I have no idea what I'm talking about), let me know if you've had similar experiences. All my repairs have cost me less than a 100 each time, I want to keep it that way.
