FIrst you need to find out why your throttle is binding at WOT before you pay for a mechanic $85.00 an hour that you can do you self. If you have floor mats, make sure that it's not bunched up by the accelerator peddle causing the it to bind to the floor. If you do not have floor mats, work your way from the peddle to the cable and see if there are any worn parts from the peddle to the firewall. Also inspect the cable and the bushing at the firewall where the cable goes through the firewall, once out to the engine bay, follow the cable to the throttle body and look for any binding to the cable. Move the throttle to the WOT position and see if the cable is binding or the throttle body it self is binding. If the cable is worn or binding, replace the cable assembly from the accelerator peddle to the throttle body. If it's the throttle body, your going to have to replace that since it's cheaper then repairing and you have new parts. Good luck and keep me posted be glad to help you save some money.

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 .

Air conditioner stops when i accelerate rapidly


The air cond compressor is supposed to stop, but only if the gas pedal is pushed to the floor.
If it is cutting off and the pedal is not all the way down, you could have a problem with the throttle position sensor.
Cutting off during hard acceleration gives you a few more horsepower.

you don't have a choke.
Could be the linkage hanging up for sure.
Have it checked by a pro ASAP.
Although it's kinda easy to replace, its easy to go wrong if you don't know what you are doing and safety should always come first.

GAS PEDAL


Check all the vacuum lines,sounds like one of them has split, or come off. Have somebody press the pedal while your listening under the hood to see if you can find where the air is coming from.
Just press the pedal enough to hear the air.
