This is due to the throttle flap sticking within the throttle body. The throttle flap is operated by the accelerator cable which turns the semicircular control on the throttle body. Remove the air hose to get access to the throttle body. Use carburetor cleaner to clean out where the flap sits in the body. There'll be lots of black gunk to remove with cleaner on a clean cloth. Reassemble and no more sticking accelerator.

2001 Buick Lesabre starts normal everyday. Car sits three days or more will not start unless you put the accelerator pedal down at least twice


put the accelerator pedal down at least twice ? While cranking the engine ? key on ? what ? Your vehicle has electronic fuel injection ,not a carburator . Pushing the gas pedal doesn't do anything The only thing if pushing the gas pedal to the foor an holding it there will put it into clear flood mode , shutting off the fuel injectors .

Enging cranks but no start, has spark and gas


Your engine is flooded with fuel. Check your throttle body if it's a fuel injected engine. Clean it. Remove spark plug, let it dry or replace with new ones.Try flooring your acc pedal and start. If it starts, you need to get the carb serviced. For fuel injected, you need to service/ repair/replace your throttle body, fuel injectors, idle air control valves and EGR.

Throttle sticks somethimes in park or at a red light or stop sign. Engine races between 2-3 rpms without touching the gas pedal.


You need to take the breather tube off of the throttle body and clean the throttle body and the throttle plate with carburator cleaner to remove the gumm that is causing it to stick.Be sure to do the top and bottom of the throttle borewith a clean ragg. It's all gummed up from the Ethanol Fuel that you can't but help put in it. Ethanol Fuel is bad for todays cars!!!

My 98 Toyota Camry V6 LE has 120,000 miles on it and runs great. However, lately I have noticed it sputters ever so slightly on the highway. right about 60 MPH. If coasting or accelerating it is fine. ...


Being that you have a 1998 Toyota Camry, these cars are fuel injected and shouldnt need the gas pedal depressed to feed fuel to your engine. It's possible you may have a dirty fuel pump or dirty injectors. Here are some possible steps (cheapest in $) so follow these in order to spend less money.
- Run some Lucas Fuel System Cleaner (green cap bottle), do two treatments of that in your gas tank and see if that makes a difference. Dirty lines and clogged injectors are caused by cheap gas and or constantly running on Empty thus allowing fuel pump to pick up sediment from bottom of gas tank.
- Sputtering could also be worn spark plugs (too big of a gap) and or faulty spark plug wires or both.
-Timing chain issues usually occur if you hear a constant vibration near the top of the engine.
-Transmission issues would be having trouble putting the car in certain gears, or the transmission stick does not sit in gear properly (slippage).

Just some suggestions that may help with your problem.

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

2000 Camry Gas Pedal Sticks


What you have is carbon buildup on the throttle vallve.
What you need to do:
Buy some good carb cleaner at an auto parts store (Gumout is good)
Locate the tube running from the air filter box to the intake manifold. At the end of the tube, that hooks on to the engine side, there is a large circular clamp. Loosen the clamp, and take the tube away. You will now see a brass coloured plate, that opens when the gas pedal is depressed. Have someone hold the gas pedal to the floor (WITH the engine OFF), and spray and spray this whole area with the cleaner, until the plate that moves, and the circular sides are spotlessly clean; then wipe up the residue with paper towels. What you are doing is cleaning the carbon buildup from the rotating part; this carbon rubs the circular interior, and impeded the throttle plate opening. This is to be expected with a car with your mileage, and it is quite normal. Clean it real good, and your issue will disappear. We do this same proceedure her 10-15 times a week.
This should help; and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Hi There,

If your car was running good and suddently it became like this and getting then I think your car either having a carburator or fuel injection problem. If it is a carburator I sugess go to shop for carburator cleaning and check for leakage, if it is a fuel injection then replaced fuel filter and one of the fuel injection cleaning stuff in gas tank for cleaning those fuel injection......
