Hello, your throttle body needs cleaned out. A mechanic can do this for you at a low cost I am sure. If you are a do it yourselfer your can refer to the auto manual for your vehicle and it will give an exact way to do it. Postioning your throttle positioning sensor or TPS can be tricky so that's why I refered you to a professional. You can get a can of GUMOUT and spray it into your air intake manifold and run some 89 octance through your system and this should clean it real well and it may only cost you about 30 dollars to fill up your tank and for the gumout but this is better than the 60 dollars an hour for a mechanic. The option is up to you and I hope this helps you solve your problem!

Get some lube spray and locate the throttle assembly under the hood. spray that while the car is off. try not to get nay lube spray on anything else.

The throttle assemble looks like a steel cable like the one used for bike brakes.

IF it still sticks then maybe your foot pedal needs to be inspected.

Another option is to Vacuum then Steam clean your engine while its' running. There could be dust or built up gunk in unwanted places.

Throttle sticks closed when engine is running

It sounds like you are saying it sticks in idle. The throttle valve shafts may be binding, or it just may need a good cleaning. Buy a GM approved product cleaner for your throttle body. Many have a special surface coating on the inside for smoother air flow, and the trusty old wd40 or even regular carburetor cleaner can not be such a good idea, or so I've heard.

Your throttle cable play maybe out of specification. You may also want to apply some cable grease to your throttle cable to ensure it will not seized.

The spring that returns the throttle is getting weak. Best thing to do is clean the throttle inside and out. Clean the throttle plate front and back and as for as you reach inside, use an old tooth brush and brake clean. Once clean lube the spring area. This should help. But if it still sticks , I would be looking at the throttle cable.

The throttle is stuck on full throttle what should i do

Check throttle cable. If the housing is rusted and broken, it kinks up and sticks. Check the pedal assembly also for problems.

When its really cold,the throttle sticks and excelerates!

I would have the throttle body professionaly cleaned first. There is a radiator cooling hose that runs to the throttle body that may be plugged and causing the throttle plate to frost and stick.
Have the throttle body cleaned and the cables inspected, that should take care of your problem.
Good luck.

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

I was using my cruise control and when I released it I lost my gas petal only could coast. The cable had come out of the track. Is there something I can do to it to prevent it from happening again.

if the cable came out of the groove in the throttle it usually points to a partially sticking throttle, when it sticks and you release the pedal the cable is left slack and sticking out, when the throttle loosens the cable can come out of its track, make sure the throttle moves smoothly - that the cable runs smoothly in its sheath and clean the entire mechanism with a toothbrush and some alcohol/petrol, when its all clean lightly oil the mechanism and wipe up any excess oil.
If it sticks and does this again I would suspect the throttle is worn and needs replacing. But service the throttle (clean/oil) first and see if its any better.
Theres a possibility the throttle could stick open, if this happens (dangerous!!!) turn the key off one click to kill the engine but not lock the steering. Have it in mind before you test that the throttle could stick so you're not shocked if it happens and can turn the key one click without being in a panic.

Have you tried cleaning the throttle body. Use throttle body friendly cleaner as it has a special coating that you do not want to damage it. Clean the sutt out real good where the butterfly valve is, inside and outside.
